The Prize: Who's in Charge of America's Schools?

A Conversation Between Dale Russakoff, author,
and Kate Zernike, national correspondent, New York Times

Amid a roiling national debate about the future of urban education, The Prize tells the insider story of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg's $100 million quest to transform the Newark, NJ Public Schools - and to solve the education crisis in every city in America. Alex Kotlowitz, New York Times Sunday Book Review, states that, "'The Prize' may well be one of the most important books on education to come along in years."

Author Dale Russakoff is a veteran reporter who spent twenty-eight years at the Washington Post covering education, social politics, presidential campaigns, and other breaking topics. Her profiles include Washington Post Magazine cover stories on Bill Bradley and Condoleezza Rice and a New Yorker profile of NYC's welfare commissioner Nicholas Scoppetta. The Prize, serialized in The New Yorker, is her first book.

Kate Zernike is a national education correspondent for The New York Times, where she has worked since 2000. She recently concluded four years as the paper's New Jersey correspondent. She previously covered Congress and four national elections for the Times and was a member of the team that won the 2002 Pulitzer Prize for explanatory reporting. She is the author of Boiling Mad: Inside Tea Party America.
