American education apartheid--again?
This work is a call to action by two expert teachers who believe learning is color-blind and diversity-blind. It offers readers tested models and strategies to alleviate some of the urgent and very serious problems facing teachers, students, and administrators. Policy changes are also suggested that could yield improvements in performance and management in the context of the school as a front line agency.
