From Library Journal:

Attorney Bolick (Transformation: The Promise and Politics of Empowerment), who is affiliated with the Institute for Justice in Washington, DC, has argued numerous cases concerning educational vouchers and tax credits. Here he details his various court battles on school choice and attempts to answer the following questions: Should vouchers be for all schools, for all students, or just for financially and/or academically poor schools or students? How could a system of vouchers be achieved nationwide? Would all schools be held to certain standards in education? What needs to be done to include religious schools? Although these are hot topics, Bolick does little to advance the discussion and instead promotes his own personal agenda. His politics comes through loud and clear, as he indicates his obvious biases against liberals, the ACLU, the NEA, and People for the American Way. In the end, the reader is left to conclude that this book is as much about the author as it is about this important subject. A far better choice on the subject is R. Kenneth Godwin and Frank R. Kemerer's School Choice Tradeoffs: Liberty, Equity, and Diversity. An optional purchase for public libraries.-Terry Christner, Hutchinson P.L., IL (c) Copyright 2010.
