Summary
The American public school system is at a crossroad. One pathway is decorated with signs and institutions that will lead public education toward a destination of collective obligation, accountability, and responsibility that is student-centered, community-based, and driven by educators and parents working in the best interest of students, families, communities, and society. The other pathway is littered with pamphlets, flyers, and electronic billboards falsely advertising the merits of school "choice" The direction American public schools appear to have taken over the past few decades is increasingly dotted with charter schools operated by for-profit multinational corporations and thomed public schools Increasingly, efforts to reform public education in America resemble the business model made popular by the founder of Wal-Mart, Sam Walton. Big Box Schools: Race, Education, and the Danger of the Wal-Martization of Public Schools in America examines the dangers of this trend and highlights efforts to challenge policies and practices that place greater emphasis on profits than on pupils
