Book Description: 

America's commitment to public schooling once seemed unshakable. But today the movement to privatize K-12 education is stronger than ever. Samuel E. Abrams examines the rise of market forces in public education and reveals how a commercial mindset has taken over.

" An] outstanding book."
--Carol Burris, Washington Post

"Given the near-complete absence of public information and debate about the stealth effort to privatize public schools, this is the right time for the appearance of this book]. Samuel E. Abrams, a veteran teacher and administrator, has written an elegant analysis of the workings of market forces in education."
--Diane Ravitch, New York Review of Books

"Education and the Commercial Mindset provides the most detailed and comprehensive analysis of the school privatization movement to date. Students of American education will learn a great deal from it."
--Leo Casey, Dissent
