Paul has cared deeply about children who many of us have forgotten or given up on. The Good Shepherd would be pleased with the work in Paul’s school, and I hope that our nation and our world can learn much from it. We need to learn the value of life, and one way to begin our lesson is by reading this wonderfully simple yet profoundly straightforward book.
—The Honorable Jack Kemp, former U.S. Congressman, former secretary of housing and urban development, and former vice-presidential candidate
“[Teachers like White] are proving every day that even the most troubled kids can change their lives.”
—Darline Robles, superintendent of Los Angeles County’s Office of Education, from a People magazine article on Paul White
“A gripping roller-coaster ride through the lives of vulnerable kids who are careening toward self-destruction or crime. Ron Arias vividly brings to life the genius of Paul White, whose down-to-earth ‘rules’ steer his marginalized students into productive lives. This is an amazing testimony to the difference a teacher can make.”
—Margaret McNamara Pastor, Board of Directors, Reading Is Fundamental
