The Great School Wars

PDF EBook by Diane Ravitch

EBook Description

The history of the NYC school system is a long and involved saga. The Great School Wars PDF EBook I was impressed with the amount of research that the author undertook to complete this book. By dividing the history into segments of the wars between different factions and interest groups, the author effectively illustrated major trends that repeat themselves in different forms. For example, the reader clearly sees the similarities between the immigration of early Irish settlers and their attempts at integration into the school system and the struggles with the integration of African- PDFAmericans and Puerto Ricans in the 1960s.

I would have given this book more stars, but I grappled with it because I often found the text to be too dry and unengaging. There were sections that read like a roster of chronoligical events and it hard to focus. In the end, I stuck with the book because there are very few books that contain such a comprehensive history.
