Charter Schools and School Vouchers

Paperback (Greenhaven Publishing Aug. 15, 2018)
In an attempt to correct the perceived failures of public schools came the notion of school choice. One solution is charter schools: independent, privately run but publicly funded schools that now enroll more than three million students across forty-three states. Another is vouchers, which allow parents to use state dollars at their school of choice. But evidence of vouchers' success is scant, and many argue that they violate the First Amendment. What happens to public school systems when tax dollars go instead to alternative choices? The viewpoints in this anthology examine the debates surrounding education for our future generations.
