THE SCHOOL I DESERVE Six Young Refugees and Their Fight for Equality in America

by | Read by Dani Cervone

Contemporary Culture • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Dani Cervone narrates journalist Jo Napolitano's thorough examination of an often overlooked area of American prejudice--unequal access to education among refugees, in this case in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Napolitano tells the story of what happens when a Sudanese refugee and five of her peers try to enroll in high school. Their public school district refuses them entry due to their age--they are past 18--and refers them instead to an institution more like a juvenile corrections facility than a school. Cervone's tone is even and straightforward throughout; she does not differentiate the various sources. The well-organized text takes listeners through the students' victory in court.
