Jonathan Kozol

Jonathan Kozol is an author and leftist social advocate who begins his career as a teacher in disadvantaged schools during the '60s. In the late '80s, after devoting himself to many other jobs, Kozol begins to miss children and decides to visit various city schools to see how the education system is serving our nation's children firsthand. Observant and careful in his research, Kozol traverses the country jotting notes.
