"The book is a worthwhile read for researchers, stakeholders and activists, who should reflect on the ways that other districts may share some of these dynamics of inequality."

With the clarity, thoroughness, and objectivity we urgently need on this issue, Professor Lewis-McCoy addresses the flaws in conventional wisdom and demonstrates how even the most well-intentioned participants in the educational system reinforce inequality. In this book, all readers—policymakers, parents, educators, and everyone in between—will find new language and ideas to discuss educational inequity, grapple with the sometimes counterintuitive barriers to student achievement, and leave with reasoned perspectives and solutions for change. The author's analysis is grounded in the stories of teachers, students, and parents, which are woven into every chapter, making his insights and prescriptions all the more reliable and compelling. Not content to simply dissect problems, the author offers new frameworks for understanding those problems as well as concrete approaches to addressing them in the near- and long-term.
I recommend this book without reservation.
