Arsen shares research on charters in The School Administrator
David Arsen, professor of K-12 education administration in the Michigan State University College of Education, co-wrote the cover story for the August 2011 issue of The School Administrator, which focuses on the charter school movemement.
In their article, “Shaking Up Public Schools with Competition,” Arsen and University of Utah assistant professor Yongmei Ni examine the pros and cons of charter schools, and describe the effects they have on public schools. Ni received her doctorate in Educational Policy from MSU in 2007.

The School Administrator is a monthly magazine published by the American Association of School Administrators (AASA).
