. . . whoever Mr. Kozol is mad at, the kernel of his message is worth rescuing from the tide of his vehemence. One might do both well and good to read selectively in the first dozen chapters of ''Illiterate America.'' If ever there was a cause to engage even the mildly compassionate! For once, the simplest facts and a little common sense are enough to leave any reader feeling all too fatly overprivileged. Even despite Mr. Kozol's excesses, one is left by ''Illiterate America'' feeling inclined to pitch in and lend a word. -- New York Times
