The importance of public education has been emphasized in American history numerous times Despite having many great public schools in this country America has one of the worst public education systems among the advanced nations of the world Equality in education was one of many issues that the Civil Rights movement fought for This inequality in the education after about 25 years of the Civil Rights movement led Jonathan Kozol to make general public aware of this problem in his book Savage Inequalities In this book Kozol tries to explain and prove the need for reform in the current education system Kozol who is deeply concerned about the education of all Americans sets out to visit schools around the country His observations are eye opening for most people living in prosperous parts of the country Kozol tries to explain why different school districts and different schools within each district have unequal resources for their students He explains how ethnicity and economic status of people effect their childrens education He focuses mainly on the African Americans and a little on Mexican Americans in his analysis of the American education system He calls for a reform in the education system a new system in which all children will be given equal opportunities in education and no distinction shall be made based on race religion or ethnicity Kozol is able to convince his readers to some extent that there is a lot of segregation in American public schools by including personal interviews with people who have been effected by this segregation Just stating an eyewitness account wouldnt have been as convincing as an account by the people who are directly affected by the problem Kozols interviews with school and district administrators and teachers of areas with extremely low resources make the reader better understand these people have to survive in Kozol also interviews numerous children because they are the ones who are being directly effected by the segregation
