What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Few scholars can leverage the skills and insights that Windle brings to this brilliant analysis of school choice policies. In this provocative book, Windle shows how 'choice' can represent drastically different systems for different groups. In particular, Windle expertly utilizes multiple lenses of majority populations, ethnic-minority groups, exclusive schools, and "socially exposed" schools in dissecting school choice policies. This is a major contribution to our understanding of how choice works, and how it doesn't." - Christopher Lubienski, Professor of Education Policy and Director of the Forum on the Future of Public Education, University of Illinois, USA
