Title: Charter schools, achievement and segregation : the school choice movement and its effects on diversity and equality in public education
Author: Butler, Shira Danielle
Abstract: This literature review addresses the increasingly popular charter school movement and its effectiveness in academic achievement and multicultural diversity. It examines the literature starting with the foundations of the charter school movement to the present state of American charter schools. Implications for charter school counselors are discussed. Although charter schools are gaining support in some public arenas, and with policymakers, more evidence is needed before charter schools can embody public official’s claims as the new solution in public education.
