"An author recounts the lessons he learned as a community college professor in this education memoir. Bachus spent four decades as a gatekeeper of sorts, serving as a professor of English composition at the Community College of Philadelphia…. His students were not uniformly young, bright scholars interested in learning for learning’s sake. In addition to the typical teenagers one would expect to find in a first-year college classroom, they included single parents, ex-convicts, and senior citizens. In this diverse cauldron, Bachus sought to help students express themselves as thinkers and assert themselves as individuals."
