Jonathan Kozol

If you've never heard of Jonathan Kozol, I invite you to get to know him. He understands the inequities of education between the wealthy vs. the poor, he has been documenting it for years in several books. His 2005 book, The Shame of The Nation, is a must read for anyone who has any interest, whether it be as a parent, educator, or citizen, in education. Click here for a paragraph from The Shame of The Nation from when I finished reading the book.

This is Jonathan Kozol talking about his latest book, "Letters To A Young Teacher".

Here is Jonathan Kozol from 2005 talking about his book, "The Shame of The Nation: The Restoration of Apartheid Schooling In America"
