This essay critically reviews Jonathan Kozol's 'The Shame of the Nation' and its exploration of the ongoing racial/ethnic segregation of the American school system. With reference to both the text and other critical works on this topic, this essay takes the stance that this segregation - in Kozol's terms "Apartheid School" - is damaging to both the students and to the wider society as a whole. The essay also looks at related matters including multiculturalism, racism funding and standardized testing.
From the Paper:"Critical issues associated with this topic, such as multiculturalism, racism funding and standardized testing will also be examined. As will be argued, after racism itself funding is perhaps the most important issue in this debate as many of the deprivations noted by Kozol are directly linked to the minimal funding of segregated schools in America."
