The Market Approach to Education:
An Analysis of America's First Voucher Program
John F. Witte

Book Description | Table of Contents

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"John Witte's book on the Milwaukee choice experiment is an important and invaluable treatment of a local experiment that has become central in arguing over the possibility of employing market mechanisms to reform U.S. schools. As a leading participant in one of the most visible and bitter academic battles in recent history, Witte has written a careful and sober analysis of the evidence--and lack of evidence--on key issues. There will certainly be great interest in this book, and it is likely to have considerable influence."--Gary Orfield, Harvard University

"The Market Approach to Education is passionate in identifying where the real problems in education reform lie and in dismissing self-serving arguments that get in the way of helping children who desperately need help. The book's content is wide-ranging. . . . Readers from many fields can enjoy this work and learn from it."--Jennifer Hochschild, Princeton University

"As a leading participant in one of the most visible and bitter academic battles in recent history, Witte has written a careful and sober analysis of the evidence--and lack of evidence--on key issues."--Gary Orfield, Harvard University
