Summary In this book, Powers brings together multiple sources of data and research methods as a way to illuminate the complexities of charter school reform.
"This is a very ambitious undertaking by Powers! It will be a serious and comprehensive contribution to the knowledge base on charter schools, which is sorely needed these days." - Gary Miron, Ph.D., Professor of Education, Western Michigan University "Powers has convincingly demonstrated the necessity of examining any education reform from multiple points of view: the 'talk' that spawns it; the local environment in which it is implemented; and the broader policy environment that shapes and limits it. Taking charter schools as the focus of her analysis, the message of Charter Schools:From Reform Imagery to Reform Reality is both a warning and a promise: whoever seeks to understand the complexities of education reform must be prepared to look across a wide and complex policy landscape." - Gene V Glass, Author of Fertilizers, Pills & Magnetic Strips: The Fate of Public Education in America.
