Adult Fiction LAKHANI
Summary: A young, earnest Ivy League graduate decides to pursue her passion as a middle school history teacher, and she lands a job at an elite private school on the Upper East Side.Before long, though, she realizes that the papers she grades are clearly not the work of her pre-teen pupils, but of their college-educated tutors.After uncovering this fascinating underground economy where a teacher (who typically gets paid less than a garbage man) can make the same hourly rate as a Manhattan attorney, Anna Taggart secretly works as a teacher by day, tutor by night.In the process, she discovers the irresistible lifestyle of some of New York's wealthiest and most influential families. Based on the author's real experiences, SCHOOLED offers an insider look at a world where it's as polite to talk about the tutors of Manhattan's poshest neighborhoods as it is to discuss the exact figure salaries of their C-suite employers.Even the tutors themselves, members of a blog generation who keep nothing private, have remained mysteriously silent about the truth of what really goes on in and after school.Along the way, the tutors have amassed quite a fortune while permanently altering the landscape of education.
