    1. Because I ve worked in Title I schools in New York City for the 13 years, there was little in this book that I haven t seen, and therefore little to surprise me That our public schools replicate and therefore perpetuate social relations in our broader society ought to be axiomatic at this point As an aside and as a teacher of struggling and at risk students , I ve always found it odd that taxpayers in this city and state put up with this It is an outrage, a fact this book acknowledges in its oth [...]
