This paper focuses on the dream and now lost legacy of Martin Luther King that the educational system would help mainstream minority children into American society. The paper refers to Jonathan Kozol's book, "Savage Inequalities", and its claim that Martin Luther King's legacy has died in our urban centers. The paper compares current school conditions for minority and non-minority children, looks at some of the causes for the inequality in education among children, talks about how poverty affects chances for equal education, and reviews Kozol's book in relation to this pressing issue.
