[Read] Who Chooses? Who Loses?: Culture, Institutions, and the Unequal Effects of School Choice

Controversial claims are being debated about school choice and the application of market dynamics to education. But the polemics have far out-paced hard evidence regarding who participates in school choice experiments and what effects are felt by parents, children and schools. This work reports the latest empirical results on choice programs nationwide. Who benefits and who loses under these programs? Do innovative forms of schooling flourish? Does student achievement improve? These are the questions addressed by contributors to this book.
