    " Although I felt she become a tad redundant sometimes, I very much enjoyed the points she made and the style in which she expressed them. Aside from the law facts and dates from most of the first chapter, the rest was very readable. "

    " Amazing and easy to digest. Tatum breaks it down. This is a must read for any educator or person who knows someone of a different race. "

    " well, can we?? "

    " Shocking account of the surprising re-segregation of public schools due to racist zoning plans for public housing. Important for current/aspiring educators who believe in multiculturalism in education. "

    " the historical sections are well researched and presented, but the proposed solutions - conferences where we "talk about the issues"? administrators who write lofty-worded "mission statements"? - are dubious at best. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 9/11/2010

    " Compared to Tatum's previous book, Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria?, this book is just not as much in depth. It does have some new information and is worth skimming; the other is worth reading slowly and attentively. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauren | 3/28/2010

    " This is an excellent and much-needed look at the resegeregation of American schools - why it hurts ALL children, and what educators can do to change it. I hope MHC will consider Bev Tatum in the search for a new college president! "

    " This book had some very helpful information about race relations, specifically in regards to education. "

    " If you are interested in education and/or social justice issues, this is a must read. It is a much easier read than "Why Do All the Black Kids"

    It usually takes me a while to read books but I couldn't put this one down. "
