From zero in 1991 to 3,800 eighteen years later, charter schools (public schools under contract) today educate well over a million students. This updated, second edition examines the unusual experiment that is charter education and the controversies that surround public choice and charter schools as a means of educational reform.

As charter schools continue to increase in number, this text will be a useful addition to the reference collection of public libraries, university libraries and education departments, along with high school libraries and school districts.
