Podcast: Robin Turner

October 28th, 2008

“Every population has students who are in a subculture where college success is not part of the game. One of the things I try to address is how do we reverse that culture–how do we get into that culture, find its strengths, celebrate those strengths, and still propel students to academic success?”

In today’s podcast, Robin Turner reflects on the obstacles he overcame to gain a college degree and how the successes he experienced applying the principles of California’s Puente Project inspired his book, Greater Expectations.

Get a glimpse into Robin’s classroom at Magnolia High School in Anaheim, California. We’ve also just posted a sample clip from his new DVD, Academic Literacy, due out early next month.
