Educating with Love and Without Compromise is the stirring, heart-wrenching tale of educating children in one of the most impoverished and crime-ridden communities in the nation. It is one educator's story of returning home to provide hope, education, and leadership to a school, a community, and children who far too many people and even the system itself had given up on. Faced with challenges ranging from children forgotten by society and neglected at home, to teachers and bureaucrats who question the investment of time and resources in certain schools and communities, Educating with Love and Without Compromise is the story of one man's struggle to prove that children can succeed in struggling schools and rise from troubled communities. This easy-to-read, enjoyable tale is sure to both inspire and empower everyone that cares about and loves children. Among immense poverty, incompetent and uncaring teachers, an apathetic system, and an ever expanding, deadly drug turf war, Darryl Gilliam has come back "home" to lead the education of over 1,000 elementary school students. Faced with these challenges, he is armed with two core beliefs about the education of children. First, they must always have expressions and examples of love in and around their lives. Second, that under no circumstances should educators and adults ever compromise high expectations when it comes to the learning and lives of their students. Armed with these two core beliefs, boundless energy, and a focused plan for educational change, Gilliam works to inspire the same sense of passion and commitment around those around him as he embarks on a personal and professional journey that will take him beyond the walls of the school. Educating with Love and Without Compromise is a heart-wrenching, uplifting tale that will bring its readers into the real, often unglamorous work of educating children who often sit on the margins of classrooms, schools, and society.
