Book Review by Kam Williams
"I'm often referred to as a ‘tough love' principal… The
day I declared that I wanted to start a school was the day that the fighting
began… Push has definitely come to shove…
I opened Capital Prep because I know that America has failed to develop a successful public school system that can be replicated across racial and class lines… Children deserve better and we can give it to them…
This book introduces you to the challenges we encountered and how we beat them to become one of America's most successful schools.
-- Excerpted from the Introduction (pgs. 6-16)
You don't need me to recite the statistics for you. By now, everybody
knows that the public school system is failing America's kids. Even those
who earn a diploma are generally getting an inferior education in comparison
to their private school counterparts and to children in most developed
nations, especially places like Finland and South Korea.
