In Defense of Public Schools in North AmericaBook - 2001
This book examines the history of public schools, underscoring the tremendous costs at which our public system of education came into being. A series of threatening alternatives to public schooling are examined, showing the deficiencies of each when compared to state-sponsored systems. The authors argue that public schools are not in need of repair; they are not in need of criticism; they do not need to be dismantled. They are simply in need of support.
