Published by Hoover Institution
Why haven't schools of choice yet achieved a broader appeal? Publicly funded school choice programs—charter schools in forty-three states and vouchers in a few localities—have for the most part been qualified successes. Yet the rhetoric of choice supporters promised much more effective schools and an era of innovation that has not come to pass. In Learning as We Go: Why School Choice Is Worth the Wait, Paul T. Hill examines the real-world factors that can complicate, delay, and in some instances interfere with the positive cause-and-effect relationships identified by the theories behind school choice.

Hill explains why schools of choice haven't yet achieved a broader appeal and details the key factors—including politics, policy, and regulation—that explain the delay. The author then suggests changes in public policy along with philanthropic investment that could overcome barriers and increase the rate of progress toward full operation of what he calls the "virtuous cycle" stimulated by school choice.

Paul T. Hill is a distinguished visiting fellow at the Hoover Institution and a member of the Koret Task Force on K-12 Education. He is the John and Marguerite Corbally Professor and director of the Center on Reinventing Public Education at the University of Washington-Bothell.

Muubaa Kurah Leather Laser Cut Biker in Black Delicate laser-cut detailing on the sleeves and back yoke give the garment a feminine finish to contrast with the distressed quality of the tumble-washed leather. http://www.laamash.com/2013/06/14/muu...
