Product Overview

"Levine and Scheiber tell two tales about poor kids growing up in the Bronx---one inspires, the other rips your heart out. They also compel us to recognize that educational failure has both individual and societal costs that can be fatal. We can and must do better."---Joel Klein, Chancellor, New York City Department of Education

"With all the emotive range of a literary novel, Arthur Levine and Laura Scheiber have written a persuasive call to action for all educators. We must be mentors and provide all students the chance to explore all the world has to offer, as best we can."---James P. Comer, M.D., Maurice Falk Professor of Child Psychiatry, Yale Child Study Center, Associate Dean, Yale School of Medicine

"We need more leaders like Arthur Levine who are willing to reach across community divides to build authentic relationships with the next generation of Americans. In Unequal Fortunes, Levine and Scheiber show what it means to learn and care about the lives of young Latinos and the payoffs for our children, their communities, and this country."---Sarita E. Brown, President, Excelencia in Education "Compelling, incisive, and poignant. This is an intimate reflection of life's changing realities---for individuals, neighborhoods, communities, and education. In this narrative manifesto for action, Levine and Scheiber inspire us upward to a dream for all!"---Sharon Lynn Kagan, Virginia and Leonard Marx Professor of Early Childhood and Family Policy, Teachers College, Columbia University
