Book Review Of Kozol's Savage Inequalities Jonathan Kozol. Savage Inequalities: Children in America's Schools. New York, Harper Collins, 1991. 262 pp. In this detailed and shocking book, Jonathan Kozol describes the horrific and unjust conditions in which many children in today's society are forced to get their education.

... ney on the education of these students is presently a futile endeavor. Also, any reform, which does not include such added spending, will be a tragic failure. In all six cities, a ringing matter in each school comprises of missing and damaged textbooks, supplemental materials and normal building necessities such as clean classrooms and bathrooms needed to give the students a reasonable chance to be successful. Kozol gives statistical data, which shows the more money spent on educating children; the more successful will be that education (Kozol 158). The school system, he demonstrates, is a system of separate and unequal education: Behind the good statistics of the richest districts lies ...

- Political science Public Schools . Kozol feels that the way in which we fund public schools is arcane and unfair (54). Since most areas in the US rely on property tax in order to fund education, the poorer districts are at a disadvantage over the wealthy districts because of lack of income. This is a problem because the wealthy schools keep getting wealthier and the poor schools keep getting poorer. For example Kozol points to the inner city schools of Chicago in comparison with a suburban high school (New Trier). He states that the schools like New Trier receive about $90000 more dollars a year than the inner city schools, when the inner city schools could really use that money to fix up ...

- The Assessment Of Social Mobility - 1,588 words
The Assessment Of Social Mobility Are the 35 million Americans who fall below the poverty line there because they are lazy and have let all opportunities for social advancement pass them by? Or is there currently a social structure that successfully reproduces classes and limits upward social mobility in America? Certain institutions in American society, including education, work and occupational structure and the family help perpetuate social class stratification. These institutions widen the gap between the rich and the poor by placing inherent restrictions on opportunities for those born into different classes. Although the degree of effort put forth by each individual is critically impor ...
