The Weekly Hit List: April 26, 2013

Educating All God's ChildrenEducating All God’s Children by Nicole Baker Fulgham was reviewed by Teach For America’s Chief Knowledge Officer Steven Farr.

“Nicole’s book comes from a Christian perspective, but raises I think critical questions for all of us–of all faiths and lacks thereof–about WHY we are pursuing education equity. . . .

“Maybe (and I hope that) Nicole is right that Christians in this country are “uniquely situated to help solve the problem” of educational equity.  I am inspired by Nicole’s vision that the massive network of Christian churches in the US could–in the same way many were central in the Civil Rights movement–could be a key force in changing the education system.”
