Frustrated with your teaching career and the wet blanket that conservative bureaucracies throw on every effort you make to teach creatively? This winner of the American Teaching Award offers an honest and heartfelt story of how his perseverance and faith in human potential led him to create a ghetto crucible for a long string of brilliant students. One of the most inspiring stories on audio, this is a humble tale of how Esquith motivated group after group of supposedly disadvantaged students in the face of the many human and institutional obstacles in an urban Los Angeles school. With ideas that seem revolutionary in today’s overcontrolled educational environment, this outstanding audio shows how passionate expectations can provoke exceptional achievement.
