A Think Twice Review of:

Parent Power: Grass-Roots Activism and K-12 Education Reform

Think Twice - Sep 06, 2012

Publisher/Think Tank - American Enterprise Institute

Author(s) -

This report reviews a narrow selection of education reform advocacy organizations (ERAOs), which seek to organize parents around market-based school reforms.

Reviewer(s) - Michelle Fine, CUNY Stan Karp, Education Law Center

The report suffers from several research defects, narrowly defines education advocacy groups as only those who advocate for market-based reforms, and mischaracterizes urban parents. The reviewers also found that the report is neither a credible research study nor a primer on "parent power."
