I go into this already familiar with much of Greene's "research" and advocacy, and I feel he is frequently dishonest. Instead of the rightwing think-tank he worked at when he wrote this, he now works at a bought and paid for "endowed chair" at a public university giving him a more credible appearance as he spreads his viewpoint. The Walton family, the multi-billionaire Walmart founders who run the virulently anti-public education Walton Foundation (which funneled millions of dollars to Utah via [...]

What a horrible attempt at research.

I knew this guy was lying the more pages I read of Education Myths. Eventually, I gave up during Part IV which basically says vouchers work. That's not true at all. It depends on the quality of the students. Because I was born profoundly deaf, I can tell you in a heartbeat that I was turned down by private schools because of my disability. Private schools are extraordinarily selective in two ways: taking in higher quality students (the Whites) whose parents can afford it and not being bothered w [...]

Excellent book. Sources are credible and well cited. Does a good job of presenting facts. As a state legislator I have found most of the national information to be true for my state and this is one of many sources I consult during school finance debates. As a teacher in a public school I agree with the author. I see the events he describes everyday. Until parents are made aware of what really goes on in public education we can expect mediocrity from our public schools at a tremendously high fina [...]

Jay Greene is a numbers guy. A very big numbers guy. He uses lots of studies to explain how what we think about the education debate is wrong. I do agree with him on some of his points - there are more high school dropouts then people think and most private schools educate kids for less money than public schools. But he doesn't look at the why behind all of these things. And I think why is important.

This book sold me on private education. I am now a great supporter of private schooling, but not vouchers. If private schools receive high levels of government funding, they will inevitably lose their independence.

Okay, so this isn't TECHNICALLY a homeschool book (in fact, the word was only mentioned about once), but I extrapolated some NICE answers to things people tell me when they're being obnoxious about family's educational choices.

I think the author had some great ideas. This book was written like a college text, and I just skimmed it because I don't have the time to really pore over something. I wish it had been written in more of a layperson's language--I'm sure it would be more popular if it were.

a lot of arguments I don't agree with, but I was happy to see them clearly explained and carefully cited.

This book is great. Economics meets teaching meets sociology.
