Kozol believes that children from poor families are cheated out of a future by grossly underequipped, understaffed and underfunded schools in U.S. inn er cities and less affluent suburbs. The schools he visited between 1988 an d 1990--in burnt-out Camden, N.J., Washington, D.C., New York's South Bronx , Chicago's South Side, San Antonio, Tex., and East St. Louis, Mo., awash i n toxic fumes--were "95 to 99 percent nonwhite." Kozol ( Death at an Early Age ) found that racial segregation has intensified since 1954. Even in the suburbs, he charges, the slotting of minority children into lower "tracks" sets up a differential, two-tier system that diminishes poor children's ho rizons and aspirations. He lets the pupils and teachers speak for themselve s, uncovering "little islands of . . . energy and hope." This important, ey e-opening report is a ringing indictment of the shameful neglect that has f ostered a ghetto school system in America.
