Which Is "Worse"? Privatization, Or A Centralized Curriculum?

According to The Gadfly's summary of a recent report from Research For Action, educators may have less to fear from private management companies than they do from district administrators.

"Seemingly positive districtwide reforms (such as instituting a core curriculum and benchmark exams) had the unintended consequence of further weakening provider autonomy and eliminating distinctions among management companies," according to the summary.

There's only one problem: The report (Privatization “Philly Style”: What Can Be Learned from Philadelphia’s Diverse Provider Model of School Management) doesn't seem to be online yet.
