Summary
Weaving together the racially fraught history of public education in Milwaukee and the broader story of hypersegregation in the rust belt, Lessons from the Heartland tells of a city's fall from grace-and its chance for redemption in the twenty-first century. A symbol of middle American working-class values, Wisconsin-and in particular urban Milwaukee-has been at the forefront of a half century of public education experiments, from desegregation and "school choice" to vouchers and charter schools. This book offers a sweeping narrative portrait of an all-American city at the epicenter of public education reform, and an exploration of larger issues of race and class in our democracy. The author, a former Milwaukee Journal reporter whose daughters went through the public school system, explores the intricate ways that jobs, housing, and schools intersect, underscoring the intrinsic link between the future of public schools and the dreams and hopes of democracy in a multicultural society
