Format: Paperback
City Schools and the American Dream by Pedro Noguera is one of the most excellent books in the field of education. He articulately writes about how we can improve urban schools as well as help the poorest, neediest students. He insists that there are models of successful schools who have common characteristics. He writes about such subjects as the achievement gap, safety in schools and inequality in schools. This is a must read for any educator who wants to know what is really going on in our inner city schools. This is also a good book for anyone interested in the future of our children. Dr. Noguera is right on. What a blessing he is to the world.
