The Weekly Hit List: July 19, 2013

Educating All God's ChildrenEducating All God’s Children by Nicole Baker Fulgham was reviewed by David Swanson for The Englewood Review of Books.

If there is any doubt that public education is in crisis then Nicole Baker Fulgham’s book, Educating All God’s Children, should convince the most dubious skeptic.

“Early on she outlines the inequities most of us have become accustomed to: far greater percentages of Asian American and White students gradate high school in four years than do African American and Hispanic/Latino students; noticeably fewer African American forth-graders preform basic math skills compared with White students.

“Many of us have heard these sorts of statistics often enough that we no longer really hear them; Educating All God’s Children makes sure we listen closely while beginning to imagine a different future.”
