Summary
  • Frustrated and angry that their children are not getting the solid education their tax dollars should provide, parents everywhere have lost faith in the public school system. A testimony to this frustration, low-income parents in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, seized their district's school choice initiative and used it to renounce public education, demanding the right to send their children to successful schools where learning counts. School choice offers parents an alternative to public schools - hope for those trapped in a system that refuses to change. This is the story of the inner-city parents who took advantage of that alternative, despite relentless opposition from school boards, teachers' unions, local politicians, even the NAACP
  • In Break These Chains, author Daniel McGroarty gives a blow-by-blow, heart-wrenching account of what happens when low-income parents fight institutionalized poverty - and win. It is also a stunning illustration in microcosm of how school choice can dramatically improve the education of children in America
