Wamba, Nathalis Guy; Ascher, Carol
Education and Urban Society, v35 n4 p462-76 Aug 2003
Investigates the implications of charter school choice for equity, discussing three standards of equity (racial balance, resources, and outcome). Reviews the equity provisions of state charter legislation, research on who chooses charter schools for their children and why, and analyses of the demographic characteristics of charter school students. Results suggest that charter schools have not overcome racial isolation. (SM)
