Creative Dissidents: Stop Shortchanging Talented Kids Who Challenge Us

Mark Phillips is a columnist for the Marin Independent Journal and the The Answer Sheet. He has this to say.
"A few years ago I spent time at Eagle Rock School, a wonderful school in Colorado for so-called "at-risk" kids from all over the country. I noticed that many of the best students were highly creative kids with extraordinary leadership, presentation and communication skills. Exploring further, I discovered that many of these same students had been in and out of two or three high schools prior to coming to Eagle Rock; in some cases voluntarily, in some cases not."
