Schools, Vouchers, and the American Public by Terry M. Moe
Book DescriptionMoe's new book is not an argument for or against vouchers; it is an analysis of public opinion on vouchers that is likely to be very influential in shaping the movement's future. Moe has written a nuanced and thoughtful treatise that goes beneath the notoriously unreliable single-shot question favored by the media: Do you favor or oppose school vouchers? -Richard D. Kahlenberg in The Nation "In a brilliant, definitive analysis of the subject, Terry Moe tells us who does --and does not --like vouchers as well as who says they will use them, if the opportunity arises. He illuminates not only the school choice debate but the nature of public opinion more generally." -Paul E. Peterson, Harvard University "No book tells us more about how Americans evaluate schools...This book will be the starting point for anyone interested in any school reform, not just vouchers. A model analysis of public opinion on a public policy." --Samuel Popkin, University of California-San Diego "Finally, a book on school vouchers that explores what ordinary Americans want and believe when thoughtfully engaged on the issue." --Stephen D. Sugarman, University of California

Why are America's public schools falling so short of the mark in educating the nation's children? Why are they organized in ineffective ways that fly in the face of common sense, to the point that it is virtually impossible to get even the worst teachers out of the classroom? This title answers such questions.

Technology can revolutionize schools ??? if we let it Imagine a cyber-school in an old steel mill where students from distant cities log in to learn. Or a Midwest charter school with state-of-the-art learning labs, where kids use laptops to manage their work.
