In 2005, legendary civil rights leader and education activist Robert Moses invited one hundred prominent African American and Latino intellectuals and activists to meet to discuss a proposal for a campaign to guarantee a quality education for all children as a civil right-a movement that would "transform current approaches to educational inequity, all of which have failed miserably to yield results for our children." The response was overwhelming, and people literally started organizing on the spot. This book-emerging directly from that effort-starts with a fierce, eloquent call by Moses for a new approach to school reform. He argues that the crisis in public education for children of color won"t be solved by bureaucratic fixes, but-like the crisis in political citizenship in the 1950s and 1960s-only by a grassroots popular movement on the model of the civil rights movement. Latino organizer Ernesto Cortes tells us about the realities of organizing based on the success stories of grassroots change in Texas. Lisa Delpit shows us the key features of culturally grounded quality education. Other eminent educational, historical, and legal experts lend their voices to this pathbreaking book.
