Abstract

The strategy of neoconservative advocates of private and religious school choice appears to be to exploit the dissatisfaction of poor, predominantly minority parents in order to achieve the goal of creating a publicly funded private school system free of public control and oversight. If achieved, the authors argue, this alternative system will inevitably reproduce and legally sanction the doctrine of "separate but equal" on a grand scale.
