Education and Capitalism: How Overcoming Our Fear of Markets and Economics Can Improve America's Schools

Education and Capitalism: How Overcoming Our Fear of Markets and Economics Can Improve America's Schools

The authors call on the need to combine education with capitalism. Drawing on insights and findings from history, psychology, sociology, political science, and economics, they show how, if our schools were moved from the public sector to the private sector, they could once again do a superior job providing K-12 education.
