Synopses & Reviews
This is the book for readers of Jonathan Kozol's previous works on education, including The Shame of the Nation
and On Being a Teacher
; for readers of memoirs like Frank McCourt's Teacher Man
; for new teachers looking for guidance and inspiration; and for educators, administrators, and children's advocates of all levels of experience.
From the award-winning author of bestsellers Shame of the Nation, Savage Inequalities, Amazing Grace, Death at an Early Age, and Ordinary Resurrections, Jonathan Kozol's most personally insightful and revealing work to date takes the form of encouraging letters to Francesca, a young classroom teacher, offering advice, personal stories, and a shared sense of outrage at the inadequacies of America's educational system.
