Book Description:

Americans like to imagine that public education is a great equalizer. With an education, anyone can leap social, racial, and economic barriers and grab a piece of the American pie. Unfortunately, that formula has not always worked, particularly for African Americans. For them, the promises of education—equity, equality, and quality of life—have not been kept.

About the Author:

Cynthia Jackson is a faculty member at the Union Institute and University, Cincinnati, OH.
