Lubienski (education policy, U. of Illinois) and Weitzel, a doctoral student in educational organization and leadership at the U. of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, bring together nine chapters by education policy and administration scholars from the US who survey the history, current status, and future of charter schools in the US. They evaluate how well they are fulfilling their original goals: introducing competition to the school sector, promoting more equitable access to quality schools, and encouraging innovation to improve educational outcomes. Providing a variety of perspectives, they examine the record, role, and impact of these schools in light of these expectations, in the areas of student achievement, social segregation, competition with public schools, school finance, the use of management organizations, parental choice, and education policy, and their unintended effects, as they begin a new phase of development. The volume is a product of the Forum for the Future of Public Education, an initiative at the U. of Illinois meant to bring empirical evidence to critical policy areas.
