It's a social problem that can be solved
Schools in Crisis is for parents, mentors, and friends who want kids to succeed. In many ways, America's children are at the mercy of their zip code. Five simple numbers to determine your future. Kids are either raised in a zip code zoned for a public school with quality education or a public school with poor education. This education will set the trajectory for their future - for better or for worse. Educational inequity is one of the biggest social problems of our time. But it can be fixed within our lifetime. And each of us, whether we have school-aged children or not, has a role to play.
Schools in Crisis is part of the FRAMES series - short yet meaningful reads on the top issues facing us in today's complex culture. It's a new kind of book brought to you by Barna Group, to help you read less, and know more.
