Privatizing Education: Can the School Marketplace Deliver Freedom of Choice, Efficiency, Equity, and Social Cohesion?


Privatizing Education is a collection of essays written by such luminaries as Arthur Levine, Martin Carnoy, Caroline Persell, Amy Stuart Wells, Geoffrey Walford, Gary Natriello, and Peter Cookson who examine one of the hottest topics in education today -- the efforts by some groups and lobbyists to move education from the public to the private sector. This is occurring through tuition tax credits, vouchers, and some charter school initiatives. The volume grows out of a conference that took place at Columbia University Teachers College called "Setting the Agenda".
