Product Details


“[Chavis] has many of the habits of some of the best educators I know – a wicked sense of humor, a weakness for shocking the conventionally wise, and a deep love of children, particularly those who have had difficult lives.”
-Jay Mathews, The Washington Post

“Ben Chavis inspires us….His impact will ripple far beyond those who were fortunate enough to be among his students.”
-Michelle D. Bernard, President and CEO, Independent Women’s Forum and MSNBC Political Analyst

“Chavis’s book succeeds in what it sets out to do: tell the story of how a ‘country Indian’ from the wrong side of the river grew into a fiercely determined educational leader, and how he turned a failing school into a model of excellence for the nation….Ben Chavis himself is one of a kind – passionate, intense, and brutally honest. Like a character in a high-concept Hollywood film, he unabashedly tells whomever he’s speaking with exactly what’s on his mind….Chavis is a cross between Socrates and Dirty Harry.”
-Andrew J. Coulson, City Journal
