CHILDREN ERICA-! schools Jonathan Kozol's book, Savage Inequalities:

and urban schools. And he shows how this matter affects children who go to
schools that have few or ...

understaffed, and underfunded, and compares them to schools in more affluent
areas. Amazing ...

school teacher, Kozol provides heartwrenching depictions of what takes place in
many of America's most underfunded innercity schools. In Savage Inequalities,a
we meet children, teachers, and administrators at poorly funded schools in six

At the time, we did not know that Jonathan Kozol's (2005) new volume, Shame of
the Nation: The Restoration of Apartheid Schooling in America, would be

repeatedly used Savage Inequalities in our social foundations courses, and we
have found ...

grass, trees, and playing fields, while poor inner-city schools are cramped amid
boardedup buildings, litter-strewn vacant lots, and blacktop parking lots. For
America's poor children, there are no libraries to visit, no centers to go to, and no
field houses to play in. There is nothing at all but despair. In 1991, Jonathan
Kozol wrote Savage Inequalities: Children in America's Schools.3 It is an
