Read full description of the books:
Mr. Young struggled academically throughout high school. In the 10th grade, he was directed to leave high school by a school administrator due to horrible academic performance. However, Mr. Young - after being told by his mother to make a choice - decided to remain in school. It would take years before he would connect with the process of learning in a meaningful way. Mr. Young had to mature before he would make some difficult choices and changes, which drove him to receive several college degrees and to later become a college professor. This story is about the power of choice, a dream, desire, and determination to not quit, to overcome, to persevere, and to excel after struggling academically for many years. This is a story of survival. Mr. Young chronicles his many educational challenges, setbacks, and lessons learned. This book details a deeply personal story. This story is a very insightful reference guide for anyone who is struggling or has struggled academically, teachers who want to obtain experiential knowledge from a past misdirected student and now teacher, or parents who seek to better understand the challenges faced by this former at-risk student's documentary.
