Promote social mobility in education with this powerful memoir on inequity

What should be done for the children of essential workers? What has COVID-19 taught us about the gaps between home and school? How can we help children succeed despite their family circumstances? Drawing on his inspiring, poignant, and sometimes hilarious memoir of growing up in a working-class community, Andy Hargreaves shares how he was raised by a widowed mother with three jobs, was on welfare, had to figure out how to fit in with the academic elite at school while dealing with the local gang in his neighborhood, and managed to succeed despite an alien high school curriculum. If you, your family, or the kids you teach struggle to “move on up” through education; if you or they have taken on multiple jobs, sacrificed something, burned whole gallons of midnight oil, or left behind a homeland to have a better chance in life, then this book and book club discussion is for you. Moving is not just a memoir of individual grit, defiance, and resilience. It is a testament to the power of public systems to undergird people’s individual efforts. It has clear strategic implications not just to help kids beat the odds but to make sure we can change the odds, so all kids get the chances they deserve. Praised by Howard Gardner, Diane Ravitch, Michael Fullan, and Yong Zhao, this is the summer read you can’t afford to miss.
