Jonathan Kozol traveled from the most blighted neighborhoods of Chicago to the urban wreckage of Camden, New Jersey; from the ghetto suburbs of Detroit to inner-city San Antonio; East St. Louis, and Washington, D.C. Everywhere, he discovered separate systems of public schools, with the children of America's poor condemned to schools that are underfunded, understaffed, physically crumbling, and imbued with despair.

The richest Americans congratulate themselves on the large sums they invest in their children's schools, while the poor actually devote proportionally larger shares of their incomes to education. Savage Inequalities carries a sense of urgency and immediacy, and will certainly revive debate on the most vital, fundamental, and controversial issue facing America today!

    " I was introduced to this book by a friend during college. It opened my eyes to so many injustices occurring in our country's education system. The summer before I started a certification program to become a teacher, I read several more of Kozol's books along with other authors' books on the subject. They've inspired me to do as much as I can as an educator of our kids. "
