I am back from a working vacation and gearing up for the full on media blitz for the book. Ok, maybe not a blitz but a few well placed interviews. I’ve noticed something interesting. Of the four interviews I’ve done so far, each journalist has described First Class book differently. Some interviewers have approached the book as a history book. Some have approached it as a book about race and economics. Others have approached it as a book about education. I personally think the three are intertwined when education reform is discussed, it cannot be considered in a vacuum. This teaching program at Princeton University, dealing specifically with urban education, seems to have the right idea, IMHO.
