Aloha, Mr. Hand – An Alternative Trip through Education
In every school district in America, even one of the wealthiest, a little corner is reserved for the disinterested, discouraged, and deemed "at risk" students. Students upon whom others have given up hope. Anthonette Klinkerman spent a decade teaching literature at a night high school in Douglas County, Colorado, and in this book presents some of the hard-to-believe stories and improbable triumphs from within the school's borrowed halls. Alternative education just means a different pathway to success, an elusive idea for some students until they walked through the doors and met teachers ready to help them succeed.
