Join the JCCS ECIAC Committee, fellow educators, students, parents, and community members in an evening with noted educator, author, and social justice advocate Jonathan Kozol. His books include Death At An Early Age, Savage Inequalities, Amazing Grace, Illiterate American, Rachel and Her Children, The Shame of the Nation: The Restoration of Apartheid Schooling in America, and the upcoming Letters to a Young Teacher.

Jonathan Kozol has continually combined teaching with activism. Working with African American and Latino parents, he helped set up a number of freedom schools in storefronts and church basements and later taught at South Boston Senior High School during the city's desegregation crisis.

At the forefront of social and educational examination, Jonathan Kozol's books are now considered required reading at most universities and part of the curriculum for future teachers and religious leaders.

Please RSVP by Thursday, October 4 for this exciting event!
