Description

From Bill Cosby, actor, entertainer, and New York Times bestselling author of Fatherhood and Congratulations (Now What?) comes a groundbreaking book with the potential to reinvent education in America.

Exchanging comedy for community activism, Bill Cosby teams up with Dwight Allen, Eminent Professor of Education Reform at Old Dominion University, to issue a challenge to the federal government and the new captains of industry: produce one hundred billion dollars and reform, revamp, and reinvent our schools. Together, Cosby and Allen do more than discuss the problems — the crumbling buildings, flagging test scores, and failing students — they offer concrete solutions, outlining a point-by-point plan for putting dot-com dollars to work.
