About this title


This volume looks at the historical development of the concept of school choice through a presentation and discussion of articles written by various scholars since the late 1970s. It examines the conceptual differences in three forms of school choice - vouchers, magnet plans and public schools of choice - considering the historical background; philosophical assumptions; and the legal, sociological, financial and political implications of each form. Also included is an overview of current systems and their success, and a survey of over 4000 individuals regarding their perceptions toward choice. The book presents an analysis of one form of restructuring - site-based management. As site-based management is increasingly implemented as a means of de-centralizing school control and empowering educational professionals, schools of choice will be considered as a means of balancing that power with a comparable form of enfranchisement for parents.
