In the crossfire : Marcus Foster and the troubled history of American school reform

As a teacher, principal, and superintendent-- first in his native Philadelphia and eventually in Oakland, California-- Foster made success stories of urban schools and children whom others had dismissed as hopeless, only to be assassinated in 1973 by the previously unknown Symbionese Liberation Army in a bizarre protest against an allegedly racist school system. Foster's story encapsulates larger social changes in the decades after World War II. By focusing on an educator who worked in the trenches and had a reputation for bridging divisions, Spencer sheds new light on the continuing ideological debates over race, poverty, and achievement.
