An aspiring teacher's journey into the dark heart of the American education system.

A part of James Hartman fit perfectly into his career as an attorney in New York City. He was good at what he did and enjoyed the perks of the professional career his privileged upbringing had reared him to strive for all his life. But another part of James believed he should be doing something with his life that would, in some small way, help change the world for the better. And James needed more time than his high-powered career allowed to save his deteriorating marriage and to live a more meaningful life.

So James left the law to teach in an inner-city public high school. His hope was to offer opportunity to his inner-city students and to help turn around a failing school. What he found was a reality of dysfunction, violence, racism, and corruption far different and infinitely more tragic than he could have ever imagined.
