Ridenour, Carolyn S.; Lasley, Thomas J., II; Bainbridge, William L.
Education and Urban Society, v34 n1 p66-83 Nov 2001
Examines the efficacy of a market approach to school reform (charter schools and choice options), noting that public education should serve the public good. Discusses the move from democratic to market theory, describing losers and winners in market-driven schools. Suggests that most disadvantaged students will be forgotten if market-based policy shifts occur without appropriate public policy safeguards. (SM)
