From the Back Cover:

A powerful myth plaguing many of our urban schools is the belief that African-American, Latino, and immigrant children are nothing but trouble. City Kids, City Teachers offers a new look at urban schools by examining the city, the kids, and the teachers to explode stereotypes of teaching in the city. In more than twenty-five provocative essays set in context by Ayers and Ford, leading educators and writers explore the realities of city classrooms from kindergarten through high school. City Kids, City Teachers moves back and forth from the poetic to the practical, celebrating the value of city kids and their teachers. It is a useful guide as well as a call to action for anyone who teaches, has taught, or is considering teaching in urban schools, and for every parent with children in our schools today.

About the Author:

William Ayers is Distinguished Professor of Education at the University of Illinois at Chicago and a co-editor of City Kids, City Schools (The New Press). Patricia Ford is the executive director of the Chicago High School Redesign Initiative.
