Contemporary public policy assumes that the achievement gap between black and white students could be closed if only schools would do a better job. In this book, Rothstein points the way toward social and economic reforms that would give all children a more equal chance to succeed in school.

The author did a great job of explaining in no uncertain terms the real challenge to educational equality in this country. He even lays out a groundwork for BEGINNING to address the problem and in so doing highlights the unrealistic foundations our whole perception of public educations rests upon.
