I did not expect this sometimes repetitive mostly dry analysis of rural education to make me emotional but as I finished the epilogue I was crying like a baby. Nostalgic for my own high school-now consolidated, I was so grateful for this research and work that I wanted to make copies to distribute to every person I know. I feel motivated by & driven towards action at her words and I also long to know more.
