Other People's Children: The Battle for Justice and Equality in New Jersey's Schools (Book) [show prizes]
Title: Other People's Children: The Battle for Justice and Equality in New Jersey's Schools
Author: Deborah Yaffe
Abstract: Forty-five states have faced legal challenges to their school funding systems, but New Jersey’s decades-long conflict is one of the oldest and longest-lasting. Drawing on thousands of pages of court and archival records and on interviews with nearly 200 people, Other People’s Children: The Battle for Justice and Equality in New Jersey’s Schools is the first book to tell the story of this epic struggle over a rich society’s responsibility for the education of the poor. The book interweaves a public story — an account of legal and political wrangling over laws and money — with the private stories of the 21 inner-city children who were named plaintiffs in New Jersey’s two school funding lawsuits, Abbott v. Burke and its 1970s predecessor, Robinson v. Cahill. Other People's Children is not a scholarly study; it's a journalistic work intended for a general audience.
