The Fitrakis Files: A Schoolhouse Divided
by Bob Fitrakis
Ohio's most feared journalist is going back to school! In his third volume of "The Fitrakis Files," award-winning investigative reporter and watchdog Bob Fitrakis sinks his teeth into the inequalities of public education. In a state where the education funding system has been repeatedly declared unconstitutional, Fitrakis finds urban school districts bitterly divided along racial lines, with up to 40 percent of the kids from affluent neighborhoods being shipped out to the suburbs, while the school board is mired in scandal and stymied by political jockeying. There are no winners at these schools -- and the biggest losers are the kids, who are being taught all the wrong lessons about the importance of education.
