Restoring Opportunity - Inequality and the Challenge for American Education

Americans across the political spectrum embrace the goal of equality of opportunity, and see education as the primary social institution for achieving that goal. While there are sharp disagreements on the best way to improve education for children from low-income homes, most Americans accept that doing so is an important societal objective.  In Restoring Opportunity: The Crisis of Inequality and the Challenge for American Education, authors Greg Duncan and Richard Murnane lay out a meticulously researched case for how targeted interventions and support can significantly level the playing field between low-income children and their more fortunate peers.
