About the book:

What happens when a Frank Sinatra-loving, Jewish college graduate from the suburbs takes a year before law school to teach at an inner-city Catholic high school? Mark Gerson has written a remarkable book based upon his experiences with the mostly black and Hispanic student population of St. Luke High School in Jersey City, New Jersey. In the Classroom demolishes the myth that poor, minority students are unteachable, although Gerson recounts in page-turning prose the many challenges he faced giving them an education. As Gerson shows, success simply requires discipline, parental involvement, and a genuine interest in students' lives.
