Editorial Reviews

Contributors test the key assumptions underlying the faith in markets by linking an analysis of parental choice to flows of students between schools and their impact on school effectiveness. They suggest that the ability to realize choices is dependent on social class, gender and ethnicity, and that this can have a negative impact that might lead to an impoverished education for many students.
