"Another Kind of Public Education spins the threads of that story-the way education, race, and democracy are intertwined; the way racism and resistance work through a variety of unspoken means; what schools do to limit or to open up possibilities-into a call for 'another kind of public education,' one that helps us 'envision new democratic possibilities.'"
