The Debate Over Charter Schools

Edited by Leigh Dingerson, Barbara Miner, Bob Peterson, and Stephanie Walters

"A must read for policy makers who may be seduced by the rhetoric of for-profit charter school operators. The section about Ohio reads so true. As lawmakers, we were told that these charter schools would rescue central city children. Instead these scams diverted scarce public school dollars while leaving almost all urban children behind."

Member of the Ohio General Assembly from 1990-2006 and former chair of the Ohio Legislative Black Caucus

"The growing popularity of charter schools is a sobering reminder that we must make all schools learner-centered and more responsive to the needs of all our students. Those who want public schools strengthened, not abandoned, should read this important book."

—   Adam Urbanski
President of the Rochester (NY) Teachers Association, a vice-president of the American Federation of Teachers, and director of the Teacher Union Reform Network (TURN) of AFT and NEA Locals
