Summary
  • "A Wolf at the Schoolhouse Door is about the right-wing agenda to dismantle public education, assessing the myriads of ways our education system is being eroded with privatization measures that exacerbate inequality"--
  • If America's public schools don't survive the COVID-19 pandemic, it won't just be due to the virus. The crisis had provided opponents of public education their best opportunity to dismantle our system of free, universal, and taxpayer-funded schooling. Schneider and Berkshire trace the war on public education to its origins, offering the deep backstory necessary to understand the threat presently posed to America's schools. They offer readers a lively, accessible, yet scholarly view of a decades-long conservative cause: unmaking the system that serves over 90% of students in the U.S. -- adapted from Amazon info
