Through vignettes, essays, snapshots, portraits, and poems, Music in the Halls reveals the inner workings of a high-poverty District of Columbia public school. In it, Jankowski brings to light the visceral and emotional nature of childhood poverty and trauma and how it not only impacts a student's ability to learn but also how it restricts their ability to live a full life. Uncovering the interwoven worlds of children and their parents, teachers and administrators, and the DCPS bureaucracy — all residing in close proximity to the nation's capital — Music in the Halls is not simply a tale of hard knocks; it is an exploration of how one man's understanding and compassion can be transformed and expanded to encompass and embrace this world.
