Only for My Kid: How Privileged Parents Undermine School Reform.
Kohn, Alfie
Phi Delta Kappan, v79 n8 p568-77 Apr 1998
Asserts that many privileged parents are sacrificing other children to their own and mortgaging their own children's lives. Affluent high-achievers often back ultraconservatives' efforts to derail detracking reforms, believing education is competitive and their children deserve more consideration than have-nots. Principals must appeal to parents' sense of fairness and organize less powerful families. (33 references) (MLH)
