Dismantling a Broken System challenges many long-held beliefs about the supposed meritocracy in the United States and encourages readers to understand the oppression at work in our schools. In concise and illuminating prose, Wright makes a compelling case for every white educator to drop the veil of colorblindness and get to work.”
