Peter Sacks describes Tearing Down the Gates as a work about the staggering injustices in the American educational system. Sacks utilizes a seldom-employed tool to analyze the educational system in the United States: the role of class. Importantly, Sacks understands class in a multi-faceted way, discussing not only the money a family has but its income-producing capital and its educational background and what he describes as its “cultural capital.”
