Keeping the Promise?
April 20, 2008
Keeping the Promise? examines one of the most complex reforms in education: charter schools. In this wide-ranging and thought-provoking collection of essays published by Rethinking Schools in collaboration with the Center for Community Change, authors including Policy Matters Ohio director Amy Hanauer and nationally known educators Ted Sizer and Linda Darling-Hammond examine the charter school movement’s founding visions, on-the-ground realities, and untapped potential.
Essays also include interviews with leaders of community-based charter schools, analyses of charters around the country; and an exploration of the charter-takeover of the New Orleans public schools after Hurricane Katrina.
