LWVPA Book Discussion: A Wolf at the Schoolhouse Door [evening]



Join Jackie McGrath

LWVPA Book Club Facilitator

Former LWVPA President

 

for a discussion of

 

A Wolf at the
School House Door

by Jack Schneider
and Jennifer Berkshire



About the book:
In A Wolf at the Schoolhouse Door, Jennifer Berkshire and Jack Schneider, co-hosts of the popular education podcast Have You Heard, lay out the increasingly potent network of conservative elected officials, advocacy groups, funders, and think tanks that have aligned behind a radical vision to unmake public education. They describe the dogma underpinning the work of the dismantlers and how it fits into the current political context, giving readers an up-close look at the policies—school vouchers, the war on teachers’ unions, tax credit scholarships, virtual schools, and more—driving the movement’s agenda. Finally, they look forward, surveying the world the dismantlers threaten to build.
