Inspirational discussion with students about ways to overcome educational challenges.
Mr. Young chronicles his many educational challenges, setbacks, and lessons learned. This story is a very insightful reference 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.
Information on Mr. Young's journey to overcome his educational journey are detailed in his book, "Above Expectations - My Story: an unlikely journey from almost failing high school to becoming 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.
