Publisher's Summary

As a 22-year-old teacher with Teach For America - a program that puts college grads in front of the country's poorest children - Harris Sockel grew up in the same room as his students. From spending exorbitant amounts of money on neon-colored card stock to watching parents pull their kids from his class because he looked too young to teach, he saw the baffling, bleak, and very human side of the way we approach poverty in school. The Kids Don't Stand a Chance is an honest story about class, premature adulthood, and pretending to know the right answers.
