As the level of public debate over the merits of voucher systems and charter schools increases, particularly in the forum created by national elections, there is a pressing need for The Great School Debate. This is the book for those who wonder about the future of the common public school and who seek reliable, empirical evidence for its purported strengths and weaknesses, as well as for those of its alternatives....Highly recommended for all collections.
The book was fascinating! I just couldn't stop reading it. Its real strength is its even-handed evaluation of the evidence. Everyone else in the field writes from such a biased perspective. I am slated to teach a course on educational change next year, and I will definitely use it. Thanks for putting me into the loop on this one.

At last we have authors who understand the complexity of the issues they discuss and shed light on the debate about alternatives to traditional forms of public education.
