For over 20 years, Principal EL has taken on this challenge with the absolute belief that every child can and will learn as long as adults in their world care enough not to give up. He has transformed the attitudes and strategies of school staff, parents, and members of the community to help troubled children not only graduate from high school but to go on to earn higher degrees from major colleges and universities. He brings to the process a powerful combination of passion, caring, and leadership to craft a refreshing common-sense roadmap to help children achieve their dreams, no matter the odds.
Salome Thomas-EL has been a teacher and principal in Philadelphia since 1987. He frequently appears on C-SPAN, CNN and NPR radio. His first book, I Choose to Stay, has been optioned by Disney Films.
