Secret schooling has taken many forms. Some to help keep a people’s language and culture alive, some to help enslaved people learn how to become free, some to find ways to keep children off dangerous ghetto streets and have normalcy during war, some underground schools even were formed to help show students how others felt their government was wrong, some taught women and girls despite their gender, some were for billionaire sons, and some have created spies for all nations. In an introductory manner, you learn how secrecy has allowed some of the greatest leaders to happen, kept cultures alive and shaped our history and even, future. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
