Show Summary Details


Elaborates an ideal school choice scheme that, using vouchers, would succeed in meeting the constraints set by the principles of educational equality and personal autonomy. The scheme is modelled on a similar proposal made by Herbert Gintis. The chapter goes on to propose a series of reforms in existing choice schemes that would move them closer to meeting the demands of social justice.
