The Public Education Institute
URBAN SCHOOLS - PUBLIC WILL:
Making Education Work for All Our Children
"This is a hopeful book, because the writer writes out of a life of struggle to make schools work for the disenfranchised, marginalized, and oppressed. It is a hopeful book because the author lives, works, researches and organizes in the city. This book is not about "other people's children." It is apparent on every page that Norm Fruchter believes that the struggle to transform urban schools is about him, about all of us, as much as it is about the parents of the children currently attending schools in urban America."
