Beyond the Schoolhouse Door: How Charter Schools Are Transforming U.S. Public Education.
Manno, Bruno V.; Finn, Chester E., Jr.; Vanourek, Greg
Phi Delta Kappan, v81 n10 p736-44 Jun 2000
Discusses evolutionary stages in the education establishment's reaction to charter schools: stopping them cold, keeping them few and weak, competing with them, and accepting and using them. Charters are not revolutionary. They embody three time-tested features: community rootedness; resemblance to magnet and alternative schools; and institutional adaptation. (Contains 39 references.)
