''Douglass Horsford's precise and engaging manuscript is a must-read for those who desire to understand the subtle intricacies of race, racism, and educational policy. Her efforts stand as a testament to the work that is still desperately needed in this current moment of educational policies centered in the rhetoric of 'choice,' 'competition,' and 'results-driven' education. The lesson of this manuscript is clear--despite the individual success of a select group of African-Americans, for many, our houses are still burning.'' --Teachers College Record
