Charter Schools in Action:
Renewing Public Education
Chester E. Finn, Bruno V. Manno, & Gregg Vanourek

Book Description | Table of Contents

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"The issues surrounding charter schools are probably the most important and vibrant ones in public education today. While bits and pieces of the charter school story currently exist, nothing of a systematic nature has been available until now. The authors have pulled together a truly wide-ranging body of evidence, effectively combining data analysis, case studies, first-person accounts, and deep intellectual ideas. Charter Schools in Action will be a valuable source book that shapes the way people think about the issues."--Eric A. Hanushek, University of Rochester

"An original and valuable book. No other book provides such a thorough overview of the thinking behind the charter school movement, and so carefully puts charter schools in context of other efforts to improve education. It should be must-reading for state legislators, public school administrators, school board members, education reporters, philanthropists, and people interested in operating charter schools."--Paul Hill, University of Washington
