Parents, marketing and the school choice agenda in California by Jo Sargent Dutton ( Book )
2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Although the topic of school choice has been debated since the time of Adam Smith and Thomas Paine, the current debate originated with Friedman's ideas on vouchers in the 1950s, the Jencks proposals in the 1960s, and has continued forward to the present. In California, a voucher initiative was put on the ballot in 1992. Although it was soundly defeated, many public school administrators and personnel were apprehensive about the sentiments of the voting populace of the state of California. Because California is a direct democracy state, initiatives may be placed on the ballot at any time by special interest groups. Therefore, the issue could resurface at any time.
