The Prize: Who’s in Charge of America’s Schools?
UCSB Arts & Lectures presents Dale Russakoff, veteran journalist and author of The Prize, an essential new book on education in America, on Sat., Oct. 3, at 3:00 p.m. at UCSB Campbell Hall.
Amid the roiling national debate about the future of education, Dale Russakoff delivers The Prize: Whos in Charge of Americas Schools?, the dramatic insider story of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerbergs $100 million quest to solve the education crisis in Newark, N.J., and by extension, every city in America.
In The Prize, Russakoff draws on extensive access to Zuckerberg, Booker and Christie, as well as stories of those involved in Newarks schools, to offer a compelling and honest examination of the school reform movement. What she reveals is a cautionary tale relevant to anyone who cares about the future of education in America.
