Download å The Prize 102 An a third of the city’s schools a scenario on the horizon for many urban districts across AmericaRussakoff provides a close up view of twenty six year old Zuckerberg and his wife as they decide to give the immense sum of money to Newark and then experience an education of their own amid the fallout of the reforms Most moving are Russakoff’s portraits from inside classrooms as homegrown teachers and principals battle heroically to reach students damaged by extreme poverty and violenceThe Prize is an absorbing portrait of a titanic struggle indispensable for anyone who cares about the future of public education and the nation’s children. I want to give a realistic and brief review for anyone who is either considering or ambivalent of reading this book The overall focus of this book was implementing a propitiation by fixing America s schools starting in New Newark New Jersey from December 2009 May 2014Why this book is worth the readIt gives an actual timeline of how implementing a proposed propitiation was progressing through the eyes of the mayor Governor and Mark Zukerberg the creator of facebook and their true intentions revolving around Public Education in New Newkark NJ It even goes into the back story of Cami Anderson who was the superintendent at the time of what she did to try to fix the problem in New Newark NJ school systems It is rare to find a book with a perceptive of the school s superintendent and I appreciate that they create a picture for us that she like others had good intentions for the students enrolled in these schools but without giving it too much a way may had implement actions that were considered extreme This book is a great example of how even plans that may have had good intentions could become a blazing fire for many people I don t want to give this book away too much but I highly recommend looking into Appendix A will show you where all the money was disturbed from this potential propitiation It would also be great to do a fellow up of how New Newark New Jersey is doing in a few years from now just to see if their proposed data was right Dale Rusakoff did a marvelous job of showing us a realistic point of view that the school systems in America will not be resolved soon and that we all have a long way to go to solve this problem but we must not give up for the sake of the future generation of all children in America to receive the education that they deserve I highly recommend this book for principals superintendents teachers parents and community members that care about our future generations of children that are planning to implement change in their own school districts to understand that there is a right way and a wrong way to create change thank you for taking the time to read this review and have a wonderful day
