whether children today in America's inner cities would give their schools such high marks—and if not, why not?

"...stood in the center of what would one day be a prestigious library. Great wooden bookcases would reach for the high, vaulted ceiling, whose skylights and chandeliers would flood the chamber with gentle, sparkling light. Rolling ladders in the Victorian style would give access to volumes on the upper shelves, and window seats, tables with sturdy chairs, and study carrels would provide a place for contemplative thought."
