Summary
"We often hear about the growing divide between rich and poor in America. This compelling expose, backed by up-to-date research, locates the source of this trend where we might least expect to find it - in our schools. Written for a wide audience, Tearing Down the Gates is a powerful indictment of American education that shows how schools, colleges, and universities exacerbate inequality by providing ample opportunities for advantaged students while shutting the gates on the poor - and even the middle class. Peter Sacks tells the stories of young people and families as they struggle to negotiate the educational system."--BOOK JACKET
