Summary: "The charter school movement is one of the most promising reforms to hit public education in a long time, and no one is better prepared to explain its significance than Finn, Manno, and Vanourek. These scholars have been studying the ins and outs and ups and downs of charter schools from the beginning, documenting the successes and limitations of the charter model for policymakers in Congress and in statehouses acros...s the country. Now they are doing the same for the general public with this informative, insightful, and inspiring book. I would encourage anyone who cares about the future of our public schools to read it."--Senator Joseph Lieberman "This book offers the most authoritative account yet of the American charter schools movement. It is wide-ranging in scope, brimming with important new data, beautifully written and argued, and crafted with insight and intelligence."--Terry M. Moe, Stanford University "This book does a superb job of representing the charter school movement.... It will become a backbone--if not the backbone--of charter school knowledge for a wide range of readers."--Caroline M. Hoxby, Harvard University "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 Actionwill 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
