Separating School & State
How To Liberate America's FamiliesBook - 1994
In Separating School and State, Sheldon Richman effectively and comprehensively analyzes the failures of public schooling in America and explains the ideas and ideology behind the case for compulsory education. But beyond a historical interpretation and a critical evaluation of the state of public education in America today, Mr. Richman offers a vision of what a fully privatized educational system might look like--and in what ways it would solve many, if not most, of the problems that parents, students, and even a sizable number of professional educators see as the fundamental shortcomings of the present system. It is not an exaggeration to say that Mr. Richman's book may very well move the entire debate over education in America to a higher and more fruitful level of discussion. Book jacket.
