This inspirational book gives strategies and ideas to educators who work with wounded students-students who are beyond the point of "at-risk" and who suffer from hopelessness. It shows teachers and principals how to understand, teach, discipline, and motivate these students. This book will also empower and encourage educators to give hope to all students and direct them on a path to academic and life success.
