Keeping the Promise? Examines one fo the most complex reforms in education: charter schools. This wide-ranging and though-provoking collection of essays examines the charter school movement's founding visions, on-the-ground realities, and untapped potential--within the context of an unswerving commitment ot democratic, equitable public schools. Essays include overviews from nationally known educators Ted Sizer and Linda Darling-Hammond, interviews with leaders of community-based charter schools, and analyses of how charters have developoed in cities such as New Orleans and Washington, D.C.
