A Competitive Education examines how the charter school movement is one of both inclusion and exclusion, while also serving as a study in rhetorical theory. Written as a senior thesis in the discipline of Writing and Rhetoric, this paper includes an introduction and reflection analyzing the text of the document from a rhetorical perspective. The article, written in a journalistic style, is presented in two ways: first, as one long article, and then as two shorter articles. The content of the articles looks at the history, politics, and real world effects of the charter school movement in California and across the United States.
