The idea that we still have segregated schools was very new to me when I read this book, because I've lived in Louisville, KY for all of my life. I wasn't even aware of my city's efforts to increase school integration until I read this book and learned about the horrible effects of concentrated poverty and racial isolation in the city of Hartford. I had always thought that every school was integrated just as the schools I attended were, but the information in The Children of Room E4 made me rethink a lot of 'common sense' notions I had instilled in my mind. Great book, well written, and hard to put down.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
