Thinking like a social worker

…any questions? Yes. I have plenty.

Read: Shame of the Nation

on May 16, 2012

Just started reading Kozol’s book, Shame of the Nation.  I am infuriated with the current public education system.

This quote by Kozol says it all:  “Higher standards, higher expectations, are insistently demanded of these urban principals, and of their teachers and the students in their schools, but far lower standards certainly in ethical respects appear to be expected of dominant society that isolates these children in unequal institutions.”

I will give my full review of the book when I finish.  As always, please send interesting articles or videos my way!
