School Choice in the Real World by Robert Maranto

Book Description

School choice is the most talked about reform of American public education, yet writings about choice remain highly speculative because no state has adopted a free market approach to education--until now. The charter school is fast becoming one of the most significant attempts at public education reform in this country. Over 1100 charter schools operate in twenty-seven states, with several hundred more to be added in the next two years. School Choice in the Real World looks at the charter school movement through a highly focused lens: it examines charter schools in Arizona, which currently account for nearly one-quarter of all charter schools.Since 1994, Arizona has implemented a charter school law with the lowest barriers to entry in the nation. As a result, Arizona has more than 200 charter school campuses. Some districts have even lost more than 10% of their students to charter schools. Using the state of Arizona as a case study, the editors examine the experiences of actual charter school operators, social scientific analysis, policy discussions, and criticism and forecasting for the future. The editors bring together academics, policy-makers, and practicioners, and they explain and evaluate how school choice works in the real world.

President Obama and Education Reform by Robert Maranto President Obama and Education Reform, Hardback (August 2012)

This book offers a comprehensive analysis of President Obama's education agenda. Obama's reforms have drawn skepticism from supporters of traditional public schools. Robert Maranto and Michael McShane believe that the Obama-era reforms have led to successful innovation in both the private and public sector.

Second Term of George W. Bush by Robert Maranto Second Term of George W. Bush, Hardback (July 2006)

Second term presidencies are distinctive, not least as the president no longer has to run for re-election. Placing the second term of George W Bush in comparative perspective, this book explores the political, institutional, and policy implications of a second term. This is a useful resource for scholars and students.
