The debate about charter schools and public schools has been conducted on an ideological level. However, the ideological argument obscures the ongoing transfer of public funds to private use, the creation of business and investment opportunities, and the effects of the private enterprise model on education.

Part 2 focuses on charter schools as business investments. Throughout, the authors link the information to effects on education.
