    A collection of chapters that offer different perspectives on the reasoning behind public education in The United States. Provides some fundamental background on the philosophies behind public schooling and the inherent conflicts that shape curriculum, funding, and outcomes. Quick read and helpful for starting a conversation about society's role in public schools.
