Organizer/AuthorModern Times
While primarily focused on the city of Oakland, California, A Different View of Urban Schools is a book that could have been written about any public education structure in the United States. It unveils the true story of such controversial issues as standardized testing, school takeovers, and the No Child Left Behind legislation, and analyzes the legacy of racism and its impact not only upon our children, but also parents, teachers, and our communities at large. Epstein is a teacher, community activist, and mother.
