about

School Choice and Student Well-Being is a review of research in the area of school choice and adapts Sen's theory of Capability to develop a more complex theoretical framework for understanding education markets. It is a timely contestation. Those for whom public education is a necessity are also those most adversely affected by its perceived failure, a for them, the tension between the rhetoric of the public good and the actualité of everyday disadvantage, between doctrine and reality, deserves better explication.
