Unfinished Business by Pedro A. Noguera

Book Description

Unfinished Business illuminates the challenges in overcoming the current inequities in public education. Fifty years after Brown v. Board of Education, this book exposes a "tale of two schools" where students walk through the same high school doors but remain racially and academically segregated within--a condition mirrored in urban schools and districts across the nation. The authors offer a hopeful, yet urgent, call to invest in youth on the front side of life and to hold fast to the vision of a future where all children can truly learn, achieve, and dream to their highest potential.
