ABSTRACT
This article criticizes Chicago's Renaissance 2010 initiative, aimed at building new small public schools in minority and low income areas of the city. The authors say the small schools movement was closely connected with issues of social justice, equity, and community, but that Chicago's new "Ren 10" plan runs counter to the small schools movement. Instead, the Ren 10 plan is part of the wave of market fundamentalism known as the "ownership society." Everything that was once part of the common good and publicly administered, including public schools the authors say, is up for grabs to be sold off or privately managed.
