In an age of the "achievement gap," we should recall the accomplishments of a master teacher, Marva Collins. She profoundly changed the lives of her students by educating them; even those other teachers and administrators thought were learning disabled. This veteran public school teacher, who became disillusioned with schools, unions, and underachievement, refused to relinquish her responsibility to educate students.
Our Hall of American Achievers---Mrs. Collins is one of America's greatest gems. Cum Laude, with praise.
