    One of the Best Books I Ever Read

    A professor in my College of Education class used this book, along with 3 others, to teach about the history of education in America.

    Spring expertly illustrates the struggles that African-/Asian-/Latino-/ and Native-Americans had to endure to receive an equal education.

    He also examines how the U.S. military took over Puerto Rico, and then proceeded to force the schools there to teach in English as well as mandating that all students sing American patriotic songs each school day.

    Puerto Rican history was not allowed to be taught in the early days of the colonization process.

    "Deculturalization" illustrates how various groups' cultures have been marginalized in favor of a Eurocentic curriculum....instead of one that celebrates and reflects the true "melting pot" which comprises American culture.

    Thank you, Dr. Spring!!!

    Worst book I've ever read!

    I had to read this book for a class and it was a struggle. It has no constructive purpose whatsoever.
