"School Choice: The Findings, is a great weapon to have
in a debate on school choice. Walberg provides readers with
empirical ammunition to fight for school choice by presenting
scientific studies and statistics that show the power of school
choice and its positive impact on America's youth. The book is a
quick read but is heavy on useful statistics and data."
-JILLIAN METZ, School Reform News
"The debate over school choice must be informed by solid evidence.
School Choice: The Findings does just that, and in an
extremely accessible and well-written manner."
-HARRY ANTHONY PATRINOS, Lead Education Economist, World Bank
"There has been considerable research on school choice over the
last decade, producing a literature filled with controversy and
conflicting findings. In this book, one of the nation's most
reputable education scholars provides a helpful overview and
assessment of all this work-one that anyone interested in the
choice issue can surely benefit from reading."
-TERRY MOE, Professor of Political Science, Standford
"Herb Walberg has brought together into one concise document much
of what is known about school choice in the United States and
around the world."
-PAUL PETERSON, Director, Program on Education Policy and
Governance, Harvard University
"This new Cato book is a good introduction to the empirical
literature on vouchers and charter schools."
-TYLER COWEN, MarginalRevolution.com
"He explains everything in simple, but not simplistic, language so
that parents who are interested in this subject can read it and
form an opinion without having to get a University degree in
education first. All in all, School Choice: The Findings
is an important contribution to the larger debate about school
choice, vouchers, etc. Whether one opposes school choice or whether
one supports it, School Choice: The Findings should be
required reading material."
