Background (From Wikipedia):
His most recent book is The Shame of the Nation: The Restoration of Apartheid Schooling in America, which was released September 13, 2005. Kozol documents the continuing and often worsening segregation in public schools in the United States, and the increasing influence of neoconservative ideology on the way children, particularly children of color and poor children, are educated.
Kozol is still active in advocating for public education in the United States and is an outspoken critic of the voucher movement. He continues to condemn the vicious inequalities of education and speaks unrelentingly of the apparently perpetual apartheid of black and Hispanic children in the deeply segregated public schools of almost every major city of the nation.
