Redefining "Public" Education: Charter Schools, Common Schools, and the Rhetoric of Reform.
Lubienski, Chris
Teachers College Record, v103 n4 p634-66 Aug 2001
Considers the public nature of charter schools, comparing Michigan charter school reformers' rhetoric with that of 19th century common school reformers, noting the conflicting definitions of what constitutes public schooling and suggesting that charter schools frame education principally as a consumer good, thus privatizing the purpose of public education (contrary to common school reformers' concerns for democracy and public good).
