Editorial Reviews

Review

"Uncivil Rights makes a major contribution to our understanding of the often fraught relationship between (mostly white) teachers and (mostly non-white) students in the nation's largest school system. Skillfully framed around changing conceptions of teachers' and students' 'rights' in public schools, this book explains - better than any other - how teachers in New York City first won and then lost recognition of their status as 'professionals' in the classrooms and communities where they work." (Adam Nelson, University of Wisconsin-Madison)"

Format: Paperback
Jonna Perrillo's book Uncivil Rights traces the complex relationship between teacher unionization and the civil rights in New York City. It is an engaging read that begins in Great Depression and moves forward to the present era, exploring the ways that teacher unionization has overlapped with--and departed from-- the black freedom struggle as teachers sought to improve the quality of public education and the professionalization of teaching. This study will be of interest to scholars of labor, educational policy, teacher professionalism, and civil rights.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Dr Perrillo has written what I think is the definitive book on the internal machinations of the teachers
unions and their struggle to come to grips with the demands of their membership to control the flow
of events in public school systems that are both increasingly diverse and forced into the use of
accountability measures that are designed beyond the teachers union membership circles. This is
an excellent analysis of the strife drawing heavily on the New York City teachers union examples
including the pushback of the parents against teachers unions and union resistance to changes that
the parents felt were vital to their children's chances of success. Ocean Hill-Brownsville (NY) is a
very dramatic example of this struggle but later versions of it are now being replayed in an atmosphere in
which charter schools and vouchers are new and threatening players. A very good read for a person
interested in public schools futures. Finally, this is an extremely well written book free of the turgid
prose that usually goes hand in hand with educational literature.
