"Why we should care about public schools? Because it’s more than the schools that are at risk: we’re at risk of weakening every American institution and practice based on the premise that we would have a system of common schools to accomplish an army of public objectives."

The authors provides clear messages on how the public (should) involve on public educations. A lot of arguments are drown from practical experience in the United States, both from public and school administrators point of views
