Jonathan Kozol

JONATHAN KOZOL received the National Book Award for Death at an Early Age, the Robert F. Kennedy Book Award for Rachel and Her Children, and countless other honors for Savage Inequalities, Amazing Grace, The Shame of the Nation, and Fire in the Ashes. The final and culminating work of his career is now nearing completion.

 

Jonathan remains one of the nation’s most eloquent and outspoken advocates for equality and racial justice in our nation’s schools. Now, more than ever, as school inequality and racial segregation have mounted to the highest levels we have seen in many decades, Jonathan argues that it's time at last to batter down the walls that have locked the children of the Black and brown and very poor into seemingly eternal separation from the mainstream of American society. 

A Message for Jonathan's Loyal Readers

Jonathan's long-awaited book, "An End to Inequality," will be published on March 12. But copies will be available by February 15 and bookstores are already taking early orders, because the book has won so much attention from social justice activists and teachers. 

Three early comments:

“For over fifty years, Jonathan Kozol has been calling

our attention to the gross injustices perpetrated

against children in our nation’s racially separate and

unequal schools. Now, in An End to Inequality, he

reminds us that when children lose, we all lose, and

our futures are imperiled. Thank you, Jonathan, for

once again bringing your compassionate voice and

critical perspective to this shameful American

dilemma.” —Pedro Noguera, dean, School of

Education, University of Southern California

“In An End to Inequality, Kozol has relentlessly

confronted an unfiltered reality. Why, after all these

years, do millions of Black and brown children

remain in segregated schools where squalor and

dysfunctional facilities degrade them intellectually

and physically? For Kozol’s transformative proposals,

I urge you to read this jolting book.” —Ralph Nader,

Center for the Study of Responsive Law

 

“Heart-wrenching examples and astute

argumentation. . . . This is Kozol at his best.”

—Bob Peterson, founding editor, Rethinking Schools

School Segregation and the

Manufacture of Juvenile Consent

Jonathan recently gave a scathing lecture on racist education and the intolerable suppression of the independent thinking of poor kids

of color, which Jonathan calls the manufacture of juvenile consent.
