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. Marsh shows that education has little impact on poverty and inequality, and that our mistaken beliefs actively shape the way we structure our schools and what we teach in them.
