Marva Collins is the remarkable teacher who made national headlines with her private school in a Chicago ghetto after demonstrating (again) that children are vastly more capable than the evil public schools claim. The book that covers her remarkable history and results is Marva Collins' Way. Also currently available is Ordinary Children, Extraordinary Teachers.
The author of the inspiring book (also made into an excellent movie) titled Stand and Deliver, he is another dedicated teacher who showed that supposed "losers" in a Hispanic high school could achieve great heights if they put their minds to it. An engineer who turned to teaching, he was told by a typically dull-witted, moribund public school administration that the students would be hard pressed to learn algebra. He ended up teaching a class in advanced calculus and the students were among the highest scoring in California on a standardized test. Stand and Deliver is unfortunately out of print, but Escalante: The Best Teacher in America, is currently available. (I haven't read it yet.)
