Rich and Poor Schools is part of the Community Issues series, which addresses issues facing communities today in the USA.  They share a common format of a short story, followed by an article on the subject of the book and some activities.  Suggestions for more activities are included in the Teacher's Guide (590-0050).

Rich and Poor Schools tells a short story about children from a poor neighborhood visiting another school in a wealthy part of town for a sports competition.  They see the differences between the schools and wonder why.  The second half of the book is a discussion about quality in educational provision.  The series are suitable for use as beginner readers or as the starting point for thematic group work.
