Here is the Monthly Review Press's blurb on CLASS DISMISSED by John Marsh:
In Class Dismissed, John Marsh debunks a myth cherished by journalists, politicians, and economists: that growing poverty and inequality in the United States can be solved through education. Using sophisticated statistical analysis combined with personal experience in the classroom, Marsh not only shows that education has little impact on poverty and inequality, but that our mistaken beliefs actively shape the way we structure our schools and what we teach in them.Inequality is a question of class power, which cannot be changed by sending everyone to college. This is a liberal myth of oppertunity for all.
