Terrenda White will speak about and sign her new book, Twenty-First-Century Jim Crow Schools: The Impact of Charters and Vouchers on Public Education, on Wednesday, May 9th at *6:30pm*.
About the Book:
Examining the rise of charters in three cities, this book shows how these private institutions, usually set in poor or working-class African American and Latinx communities, promote competition instead of collaboration and are driven chiefly by financial interests. A revealing look at this threat to public education, Twenty-First-Century Jim Crow Schools explores how charter schools have shaped the educational landscape and why parents, teachers, and communities are fighting back.
