The book Myths of Educational Choice|
was written in 1990-92 and published in 1993.
It was written in response to Minnesota’s new
public school choice options - Charter schools,
Post Secondary Enrollment Options and Open
Enrollment. These programs were among the very
first in the nation to break from traditional,
residential public school programs.
The book identified many questions and concerns
about these choice programs. With the 2017 Trump
administration and the appointment of Betsy DeVos
as Education Secretary, these same questions and
concerns are more relevant than ever. The book
itself is long out of print, so the text has been
scanned and digitized to make it available here.
