"She bullied, bluffed, and bribed her students into caring about school. And if that didn't work, the pretty, petite ex-Marine told them she'd been trained to kill with her bare hands. They were called the class from Hell -- thirty-four inner city sophomores she inherited from a teacher who'd been 'pushed over the edge.' She was told 'those kids have tasted blood. They're dangerous.' But LouAnne Johnson had a different idea. Where the school system saw thirty-four unreachable kids, she saw young men and women with intelligence and dreams. When others gave up on them, she broke the rules to give them the best things a teacher can give -- hope and belief in themselves. When statistics showed the chances were they'd never graduate, she fought to beat the odds. This is her remarkable story -- and theirs."
