Text Quotes
Charity isn’t a good substitute for justice  (Jonathan Kozol Quotes) Apartheid does not happen spontaneously, like bad weather conditions  (Jonathan Kozol Quotes) I feel, in the end, as if everything I’ve done has been a failure  (Jonathan Kozol Quotes) I went to Washington to challenge the soft bigotry of low expectations  (Jonathan Kozol Quotes) I have an enormous sense of having failed in life  (Jonathan Kozol Quotes) The trouble is not that schools don’t work; they do. They’re excellent machines for achieving historically accepted purposes. In suburban schools are children of the rich, who grow up to privilege and anesthetic oblivion to pain - and who then use the servants produced by ghetto schools  (Jonathan Kozol Quotes) I wrote the first book, and I thought people would say: ‘Separate and unequal schools in the City of Boston? I didn’t know that. Let’s go out and fix it.’  (Jonathan Kozol Quotes) Congress has an opportunity to take advantage of the opening created by Justice Kennedy later this year when it reauthorizes the federal No Child Left Behind Act  (Jonathan Kozol Quotes) Good teachers don’t approach a child of this age with overzealousness or with destructive conscientiousness. They’re not drill-masters in the military or floor managers in a production system. They are specialists in opening small packages. They give the string a tug but do it carefully. They don’t yet know what’s in the box. They don’t know if it’s breakable  (Jonathan Kozol Quotes) We continue, however, to write about important people, prize-winning people, blacks of grandeur, women of great fire, fame or wit. We do not write about ordinary people  (Jonathan Kozol Quotes) During the decades after Brown v. Board of Education there was terrific progress. Tens of thousands of public schools were integrated racially. During that time the gap between black and white achievement narrowed  (Jonathan Kozol Quotes) I beg people not to accept the seasonal ritual of well-timed charity on Christmas Eve. It’s blasphemy  (Jonathan Kozol Quotes) Competitive skills are desperately needed by poor children in America, and realistic recognition of the economic roles that they may someday have an opportunity to fill is obviously important, too. But there is more to life, and there ought to be much more to childhood, than readiness for economic functions  (Jonathan Kozol Quotes) Well, teachers have been profoundly demoralized in recent years and are often treated with contempt by politicians. There’s a great deal of reckless rhetoric in Washington about the mediocrity of the teaching profession - and I don’t find that to be true at all  (Jonathan Kozol Quotes) It is a commonplace by now to say that the urban school systems of America contain a higher percentage of Negro children each year  (Jonathan Kozol Quotes) If you could lead through testing, the U. S. would lead the world in all education categories. When are people going to understand you don’t fatten your lambs by weighing them?  (Jonathan Kozol Quotes) President Obama still places far too much emphasis on relentless testing with standardized exams  (Jonathan Kozol Quotes) If there are amazing graces on this earth, I believe that they are these good children sent to us by God and not yet soiled by the knowledge that their nation does not love them  (Jonathan Kozol Quotes) When I was young, I was religious  (Jonathan Kozol Quotes) The cause of homelessness is lack of housing  (Jonathan Kozol Quotes) But when I went to Harvard, it kind of got washed out of me, partly because people made fun of you in college. If you said you believed in God, they would look at you clinically, you know, suggest that you needed a referral  (Jonathan Kozol Quotes) The greatest difference between now and 1964, when I began teaching, is that public policy has pretty much eradicated the dream of Martin Luther King  (Jonathan Kozol Quotes) An awful lot of people come to college with this strange idea that there’s no longer segregation in America’s schools, that our schools are basically equal; neither of these things is true  (Jonathan Kozol Quotes) The inequalities are greater now than in 92. Some states have equalized per - pupil spending but they set the ‘equal level’ very low, so that wealthy districts simply raise extra money privately  (Jonathan Kozol Quotes) At that time, I had recently finished a book called Amazing Grace, which many people tell me is a very painful book to read. Well, if it was painful to read, it was also painful to write. I had pains in my chest for two years while I was writing that book  (Jonathan Kozol Quotes) Death at an Early Age’ was about racial segregation in Boston. ‘Illiterate America’ was about grownups who can’t read. ‘Rachel and Her Children’ was about people who were homeless in the middle of Manhattan.  (Jonathan Kozol Quotes) If there are amazing graces on this earth, I believe that they are these good children sent to us by God and not yet soiled by the knowledge that their nation does not love them.  (Jonathan Kozol Quotes) Savage Inequalities’ was about school finance, and ‘Amazing Grace’ primarily dealt with medical and social injustices in New York. But with ‘Ordinary Resurrections,’ I had no predetermined agenda. When I met with the children, I was not in pursuit of any line of thinking. In our conversations, I let them lead me where they wanted to go.  (Jonathan Kozol Quotes) No matter what happens in a child’s home, no matter what other social and economic factors may impede a child, there’s no question in my mind that a first-rate school can transform almost everything.  (Jonathan Kozol Quotes) The recklessness with which we sacrifice our sense of decency to maximize profit in the factory farming process sets a pattern for cruelty to our own kind.  (Jonathan Kozol Quotes)
