Book Overview
WINNER OF THE NATIONAL BOOK AWARD In 1964, Jonathan Kozol entered the Boston Public School system to teach fourth grade at one of its most overcrowded inner-city schools. Here, he unflinchingly exposes the disturbing destruction of hearts and minds in the Boston public school. Death at an Early Age is the unsparing, heart-wrenching account of the year he spent there--the most shocking and powerful personal story ever told by a young teacher, now updated with a new epilogue by the author. Honest and terrifying... the heartbreaking story it tells has to be read.-- Robert Coles, The New York Times Book Review Will anger you to the boiling point and may make you want to weep... I recommend--with considerable urgency-- Death at an Early Age .-- Chicago Tribune
