Raynard Sanders at Garden District Book Shop

Charter schools once promised a path toward educational equity, but as the authors of this powerful volume show, market-driven education reforms have instead boldly reestablished a tiered public school system that segregates students by race and class. Examining the rise of charters in New Orleans, Chicago, and New York, Raynard Sanders, and his co-authors show how charters promote competition instead of collaboration and are driven chiefly by financial interests.
