the Hearts and Minds of Negro Children in the Boston Public Schools (1967),

educational opportunities for rich and poor children head-on in Savage
Inequalities: Children in America's Schools. Through extensive travel and
research, he uncovered many stark contrasts between conditions in inner-city
and suburban schools.
