A Contest without Winners (Kate Phillippo)Kate Phillippo will be at the Seminary Co-op Bookstore on Thursday, May 9 at 6:00 p.m. for a discussion and signing of her new book, A Contest without Winners: How Students Experience Competitive School Choice.

 

Kate Phillippo follows a diverse group of Chicago students through the processes of researching, applying to, and enrolling in public high school, finding that the students are powerful policy actors who carry out and redefine competitive choice. Phillippo challenges meritocratic and market-driven notions of opportunity creation for young people and raises critical questions about the goals we have for public schooling.

 

"A Contest without Winners shows readers the faces and voices of the eighth graders embroiled in Chicago’s competitive choice system. Kate Phillippo describes how the students navigate the demands placed on them, how the system changes their views of fairness and of themselves, and how school choice policy legitimizes the very inequalities that rig the competition." —Kevin Welner, coauthor of Education and the Law
