Customized Schooling aims to reorient discussions about school reform by moving away from "whole school" solutions to customized services and products.

While the best-known entrepreneurial efforts have sought to fix problems at a schoolwide level, this volume looks at "how providers might use new tools to deliver or customize services that do not conform to conventional [school] policies or structures."

The book surveys the current landscape of customized entrepreneurial activity in education, looks closely at particular customized innovations by schools and education entrepreneurs, and addresses persistent concerns that arise in connection with customized reforms. Overall, the book aims to spur fresh thought about the scope and nature of promising education reforms and to open up strikingly new possibilities for entrepreneurial activity in today’s schools.

Frederick M. Hess is director of education policy studies at AEI.
