Charter schools at the crossroads : predicaments, paradoxes, possibilities

By Chester E. Finn, Jr., Bruno V. Manno, Brandon L. Wright

Added January 11, 2017

This is a book by several charter school advocates taking stock of the past, present, and future of the charter movement. "Charter Schools at the Crossroads" offers a frank and nuanced analysis of the successes and shortcomings of the charter movement, and outlines possible directions for the future. Chester E. Finn, Jr., Bruno V. Manno, and Brandon L. Wright write that charters have been spectacularly uneven in many ways, succeeding wonderfully in some cases while faltering in others. Few recent debates in education have been as highly charged as those over charter schools roles, responsibilities, and results. The candor of the authors analysis and the forthrightness of their concerns offer both allies and opponents valuable insight into the workings of a movement whose influence is indisputable and whose future is far from clear. -- Provided by publisher
