Read my op-ed in TIME Magazine — “How Public Schools Cherry-Pick Their Students”

I’m honored that TIME ran this piece about the forgotten issue of public school access. Especially on the anniversary of the historic ruling in Brown v. Board of Education.

Writing almost 70 years ago this week, Chief Justice Earl Warren issued the court’s ruling in Brown v. Board of Education, pledging that all public schools in the U.S. must be “available to all on equal terms.” But seven decades later, that promise remains unfulfilled.

Read an excerpt of my new book in the magazine Education Next

Finished a first draft of the new book yesterday!

This one isn’t quite as whimsical as Huck & Miguel. But I have been utterly fascinated by this subject over the last two years, and I think you will be surprised by some of the things we’ve uncovered. Public education is governed, in large part, by a set of little-known laws that dictate who’s eligible to go where. Look for this book in early 2020. Credit to Daniel Gonzalez, of course, for the incredible cover.
