A Think Twice Review of:

A School Privatization Primer for Michigan School Officials, Media and Residents

Think Twice - Feb 19, 2008

Publisher/Think Tank - Mackinac Center

Author(s) -

This report is billed as a guide for Michigan school officials and other interested in privatizing school services.

Reviewer(s) - Clive Belfield, Queens College, City University of New York

Belfield’s review finds that the report offers little evidence to support its premise that privatizing school services saves money or is otherwise beneficial. Belfield credits the report with offering practical steps for issuing and monitoring contracts, but notes that the report’s usefulness stops there.
