Presents two viewpoints on how profit motive will affect education. One explains how businesses have advantages of scale and political autonomy that enable them to enhance school productivity, calling private management public education's best hope. The other cautions that little is known about how for-profit schools operate and affect education, noting that they often compete at a disadvantage. (SM)
