Education in America: A Dilemma in the 21st Century represents a detailed look at the double standard in public education that prepares minority children for failure. Jeffrey Dean Swain poses the question: why does this dual system of education exist fifty years after Brown v. Board of Education? Equal education does not result from integration but from access to equal resources.

Swain demonstrates that minority children are more likely to receive the least experienced, least certified and most unmotivated teachers. Additionally, they are the unwitting victims of administrative policies that limit their chances for success. Minorities are the students most likely to be placed in special education and the least likely to be classified as gifted. He does not demand that public education be abandoned: rather, he challenges parents to recognize the disparity in learning opportunities and understand the consequences of failure.
