Savage Inequalities: Children in America's Schools

Savage Inequalities: Children in America's Schools Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Jonathan Kozol traveled from the most blighted neighborhoods of Chicago to the urban wreckage of Camden, New Jersey; from the ghetto suburbs of Detroit to inner-city San Antonio; East St. Louis, and Washington, D.C. Everywhere, he discovered separate systems of public schools, with the children of America's poor condemned to schools that are underfunded, understaffed, physically crumbling, and imbued with despair.The richest Americans congratulate themselves on the large sums they invest in their children's schools, while the poor actually devote proportionally larger shares of their incomes to education. Savage Inequalities carries a sense of urgency and immediacy, and will certainly revive debate on the most vital, fundamental, and controversial issue facing America today
