Private schools and parental choice : dubious assumptions, frail claims, and excessive hyperbole by Ronald G Corwin( Book )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The preoccupation with choice between public and private schools offered under voucher programs obscures the greater problem of a lack of variety in the present educational system. If providing a greater variety of school structures and improving the educational system is the objective, competition between the public and private sectors will not achieve that goal. A comprehensive system of specialized schools is needed that includes cooperative relationships among many types of schools in the public and private sectors. The assertion that competition, or marketplace forces, will lead to a better educational system is invalid. Private schools represent only about 12 percent of all school enrollment and, unlike public schools, can be selective in the students they accept. Successful small, experimental programs tried in private schools may not be effective when attempted on a larger scale. And many private schools are unwilling or unable to participate in a voucher program. Eliminating bureaucracy is also a faulty reason for establishing a voucher system. Bureaucracy provides structure and fairness to the educational system. A system of specialized schools with special focuses that encourages cooperation and collaboration between private and public schools can provide the educational improvements voucher advocates seek.

What a voucher could buy : a survey of California's private schools by Marcella R Dianda( Book )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most controversial form of school choice is the voucher system, which allows families to use tax dollars, in the form of vouchers, to pay for tuition at private schools. The Parental Choice in Education Initiative, slated to be on the California June 1994 election ballot, will give residents the opportunity to vote on a statewide school-voucher program. A survey of private schools in the state was conducted to determine the availability, affordability, and accessibility of private schools to voucher-redeeming students from public schools. Highlights of the findings include the following: three quarters of the schools said they would participate in a voucher system; low- and medium-tuition schools are more likely to participate than high-tuition schools; most of the private schools are nearly full and those open to vouchers could expand by less than 15 percent without additional construction or staffing; without expanding, private schools could accommodate less than one percent of public school enrollment. Two other findings are that 60 percent of the schools charge less than $2,600 per year, the amount for which vouchers could be redeemed; and private-school enrollment is 40 percent minority and contains few low-income or non-English-speaking students. The body of the report details each of these findings and illustrates them with 22 tables and 8 figures. An appendix includes a comparison of responding schools and private schools statewide and a description of survey development and administration. (JPT)

A National Perspective on Educational Partnerships by Naida C Tushnet( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper presents findings of a study that documented the initiation and early implementation of 22 projects participating in the Educational Partnerships Program, which is sponsored by the Office of Educational Research and Improvement (OERI). This study of the first year in a proposed 5-year program, sought to identify partnership structures and activities associated with successful implementation. The distinction is made between programs that are interorganizational arrangements and those that are programmatic innovations sponsored by a particular partnership. A summary model, developed to explain factors of successful systemic innovation, is based on the premise that all partnerships begin with a set of conversations among potential members, which results in role clarity. Coalitions and collaborations are more likely to achieve full implementation than those with a primary partner and limited partners; the key is how well participants understand their roles and relationships. All of the partnerships implemented at least some proposed organizational or programmatic features; however, early implementation is achieved when there is role clarity and adequate provision of resources for program content. Three figures and seven tables are included. (Contains 17 references.) (LMI)
