I had high expectations of Noguera who is often hailed as the patron saint of urban education. He offers unique insight as a parent, teacher, school board member, and academic, but this book falls short in a number of ways. For starters, it is poorly edited. Noguera offers compelling statistics and a few practical suggestions, but the book mostly left me with more questions than answers.
