Section Description

The Educational Leadership & Policy Program is pleased to announce its summer session of the Education Policy Book Group. The Group’s purpose is to bring together CESS students, faculty, and staff in reading books on timely policy issues, and to provide a forum for discussing these books. During Summer 2019, the Group will read three books. Participants may sign up to read all three, or just one or two! Please contact Tammy Kolbe (tkolbe@uvm.edu) for more information. During the first session, students will read Cutting School: Cutting School: Privatization, Segregation, & The End of Public Education (by Noliwe Rooks). “Cutting School deftly traces the financing of segregated education in America, from reconstruction through Brown v. Board of Education up to the current controversies around school choice, teacher quality, the school-to-prison pipeline, and more, to elucidate the course we are on today: the wholesale privatization of our schools. Rooks’s incisive critique breaks down the fraught landscape of “segrenomics,” showing how experimental solutions to the so-called achievement gaps—including charters, vouchers, and cyber schools—rely on, profit from, and ultimately exacerbate disturbingly high levels of racial and economic segregation under the guise of providing equal opportunity.” (Amazon Book review) In its historical accounts of school segregation, this book promises to spur careful reflection and conversation about contemporary policies intended to desegregate, and even integrate, public schools.
