The scope of this book embraces a dynamic discussion of the value of traditional public education in the US compared with the free market of schooling expressed by privatization/choice education. The theme of this discussion is that without research-based information about free market schooling traditional public educators are out on a limb. Identifying where traditional public education is and how it got there establishes how to think as the primary purpose of traditional public education. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
