The Shame of the Nation The Shame of the Nation, written by Jonathan Kozol is concerned with the issue of contemporary segregation in schools across the United States. In the time span of about five years, Kozol visited nearly sixty schools in order to make it clear to our society the immense impact school segregation has on our nation. He explains the harms segregation has on students, such as lack of education that is needed to well-rounded individual as well as the lack of exposure to diversity. To get his point across, Kozol captivates readers by voicing the opinions of students as well as their teachers, and describes the negative effects it has on them as well as their struggles with dealing with school segregation. Jonathan Kozol’s main purpose of this book is to educate society about the serious problem regarding school segregation and to challenge our nation to finally accomplish the promise that was made nearly 50 years ago to our citizens in the Supreme Court case of Brown vs. Board of Education . Finally, he hopes for everyone in our nation to work together to find a solution which would free America’s students from the harmful effects of school segregation.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
