In Still Separate, Still Unequal America’s Educational Apartheid , Jonathan Kozol describes how there are still segregation and inequity in the education system in America today. Many people does not realize that it has become more common in urban neighbors that large numbers of low-income children are denied these opportunities and come into their kindergarten year without even such very modest early-learning skills as knowing how to hold a crayon or a pencil, identify perhaps a couples of shapes and colors, or recognize that printed pages go from left to right. Kozol claims that if we did not have a deeply segregated system in which more experienced instructors teach the children of the privileged and the least experienced are sent to teach the children of minorities, these practices would not be needed and could not be so convincingly defended. I myself went to public schools throughout my life, and I can’t help but agree that most public schools are far away from satisfactory or suitable for children to attend.
