Privatizing Education is a collection of essays written by such luminaries as Martin Carnoy, Christopher Connell, Wendy Connors, Fred Doolittle, Pearl Rock Kane, Frank Kemerer, Christopher Lauricella, Arthur Levine, Ellen Magenheim, Patrick McEwan, Lee D. Mitgang, David Myers, Gary Natriello, Caroline Persell, Mark Schneider, Janelle Scott, Geoffrey Walford, and Amy Stuart Wells who examine the efforts of some educators, reformers, investors, and political groups to move education from the public to the private sector. This is occurring through tuition tax credits, voucher initiatives, and for-profit, educational management organizations. The volume grows out of a conference that took place at Columbia University’s Teachers College which launched the National Center for the Study of Privatization in Education.

Henry M. Levin is the William Heard Kilpatrick Professor of Economics and Education at Columbia University Teachers College, where he is Director of the National Center for the Study of Privatization in Education. He was formerly on the faculty of Stanford University as the David Jacks Professor of Higher Education and Economics.
