Resenhas

I think this might be a decent introductory text for people who are wanting a deeper look into the state of American education. As an educator and as someone who has read others of Kozol's books I didn't find it be all that informative.

I put the book down after reading the first chapter. It has nothing to do with the book being poorly written. It was just from 1992, and I am not interested in reading something that's so outdated.

After reading this book, I understand why over the 16 years I was a teacher with the New York City Department of Education I was constantly angry. I don't like social injustice, and I guess I never will.
