This is the story of a novel experiment in teaching at an inner-city American high school. Murray Levin left his teaching at Harvard in 1993 to teach students in Boston whose lives were brutalized by poverty and gang wars. While exploring the seeming refusal of many students to learn, the book describes the flowering of an effective pedagogical experiment. In the students' own words, "Why do we need to know all these details? We need stuff about how to think better. How to see what you see, the cause and effect. Everything in our life stops us from thinking clear." The book contains inspiring stories of young people overcoming the odds to learn.
