Ad description

After Oprah profiled The Essential 55 on her show, Ron Clark used the royalties to purchase an abandoned, 100-year-old factory in Atlanta, GA.  The factory was surrounded by crack houses and street walkers, but Ron saw potential in the midst of the mess, and he knew it was the place for the school.  The school, the Ron Clark Academy, is a non-profit, and he took his board members to see the abandoned warehouse.  He had really hyped it up, but as soon as they stepped out of the vehicle they immediately said, “Ron, get back in the car.”  It wasn’t an easy job convincing them of the location of RCA, but eventually they agreed.  Nineteen break-ins later, it looked like the location was a bad idea.  (Crack heads are crazy…and industrious.)  Instead of giving up on the warehouse, like some suggested, Ron decided to reach out to the community and to encourage them to embrace the mission of RCA.  Over a period of 4 months he visited every home in the neighborhood, went to the churches, introduced himself to the local businesses and became cozy with the crack heads.  Ron wanted to build the best school in the world – a school that would be full of innovation, creativity and the best teachers anywhere.  He wanted to create a revolution from the ground up, where he and his teachers would explore new ways to educate that had never been attempted.  Not only would they uplift their students and place a passion for learning in their hearts but we would also invite teachers from all over the world to visit RCA to learn from their methods and to take our techniques back with them to implement in their classrooms.  Surprisingly, the idea was well received by the community members.When they first enter RCA, most of the students are far below grade level. Generally, a third of the students struggle academically, a third has discipline problems and a third is average or gifted. Having a range of students helps show visiting teachers how the RCA methods work with all students.   The first class of RCA 8th graders just graduated this summer, and after 3 magical years at RCA the results were staggering.  They started RCA only outscoring 39% of the nation on the Stanford 10, but they graduated outscoring over 90% of the nation. They received over $800,000 dollars in scholarships for elite private high schools. During their time at the Academy, they traveled to 6 of the 7 continents (thanks to major sponsors Delta Airlines and InterContinental Hotels Group).   Now, after signing thousands of books and speaking with educators and parents in every state, Ron Clark has figured out what his next book needs to be. Parents and teachers want a list. They want specifics. And parents want something they can read to their children each night at the dinner table or each night before bed. This book will provide a list of approximately 100 ways to revolutionize our children and our schools.  Like The Essential 55, Clark will give a tip, and then tell a funny, emotional or clever story to go along with the tip. All of the tips provided will be positive – how to bring education to life, how to make every child love to learn, how to place a passion for learning in the classroom and in the home. Whereas The Essential 55 was a list for students to follow, this book will be for parents and teachers.
