Description

In a reporting tour de force, award-winning journalist Steven Brill takes an uncompromising look at the adults who are fighting over America’s failure to educate its children—and points the way to reversing that failure.

Brill not only takes us inside their roller-coaster battles, he also concludes with a surprising prescription for what it will take from both sides to put the American dream back in America’s schools.

Praise For Class Warfare

“With fresh color and a compelling storyline, Brill has managed to produce the seemingly impossible: an exciting book about education policy. . . . There is a lot to learn from Class Warfare. . . . Brill has a Woodwardian knack for getting people to tell him things they probably shouldn’t.” –Time

“[Brill] brings a sharp legal mind to the world of education reform. . . . [He] conveys the epiphanies, setbacks and triumphs of a national reform movement.” –The New York Times Book Review
