This is the single best book about the history of Chicago's public schools, and this history needs to be updated now that a new generation of activists -- in the fine tradition of Mary Herrick -- has entered the stage of public schools history with the Chicago Teachers Strike of 2012. Every person who wants some of the background to the epic struggles that are taking place in 2013 around the future of public education in Chicago needs to read Mary Herrick's book 1971 book. Nothing since has done justice to the complex history -- and the central reality of racial segregation in America's most segregated city -- of Chicago's public schools.
