Policy Review, n103 p67-73 Oct-Nov 2000

Ravitch) traces the history of American school reform movements and shows how and why they failed to produce better educational outcomes. "When Schools Compete: A Cautionary Tale," (E. Fiske and H. Ladd) addresses whether it's really broadly beneficial to education systems for schools to compete for students, focusing on New Zealand's educational system. (SM)
