With his book, "Savage Inequalities: Children in America's Schools," Jonathan Kozol spent time in six different schools and concluded that the school systems are no better off than 20 years ago. Kozol learned from the Black school children that they don't matter. One young boy said he goes to an old and decrepit school because he's seen as ugly.
