📒Hold Fast To Dreams ✍ Beth Zasloff
📝Hold Fast to Dreams Book Synopsis : Since Joshua Steckel began work at a Brooklyn public high school as its first-ever college guidance counselor, every one of the hundreds of graduates he has counseled has been accepted to college, many to top-flight schools with all expenses paid. But getting in is only one small part of the drama of his students’ stories. In a riveting work of narrative nonfiction—winner of a Studs and Ida Terkel award—Hold Fast to Dreams follows the lives of ten of Josh’s students as they navigate the vast and obstacle-ridden landscape of college in America, where students for whom the stakes of education are highest find unequal access and inadequate support. Among the ten unforgettable students we meet are: Mike, who writes his personal essays from a homeless shelter and is torn between his longing to get away to an idyllic college campus and his fear of leaving his mother and brothers in desperate circumstances; Santiago, a talented, motivated, and undocumented student, battles bureaucracy and low expectations as he seeks a life outside the low-wage world of hard manual labor to which his immigration status threatens to consign him; and Ashley, who pursues her ambition to become a doctor with almost superhuman drive but then forges a path that challenges received wisdom about the value of an elite, liberal arts education. At a time when the idea of "college for all" is alternately embraced and challenged, this important book uncovers, in heartrending detail, the many ways the American education system fails in its promise as a ladder to opportunity. But it also provides hope in its portrayal of the extraordinary intelligence, resilience, and everyday heroics of the young people whose futures are too often lamented or ignored and whose voices, insights, and vision our colleges—and our country—desperately need. Hold Fast to Dreams will grab you on the first page and will stay with you for a long time. It should be required reading for anyone who cares about the right to education in America.

📒Holding Fast To Dreams ✍ Freeman A. Hrabowski III
📝Holding Fast to Dreams Book Synopsis : "Born in Birmingham, Alabama, once known as the "most segregated city" in the United States, Freeman Hrabowski discovered the courage to stand up for civil rights and educational opportunity when he heard Martin Luther King, Jr.'s call and joined the Children's March in 1963. Along with other protesting students, 12-year old Freeman spent five terrifying days in jail. But the march, the arrests, and the experience, led to desegregation in Birmingham and a life's journey for Freeman Hrabowski. In [Title], Dr. Hrabowski relates his experiences with the civil rights movement in Birmingham as a child, his relentless desire for a quality education, his development as a leader in higher education, and the ways these experiences led to the development of programs and policies supporting inclusive excellence and educational success for African Americans. Dr. Hrabowksi details the lessons about education he drew from his own experiences as a student, faculty member, and administrator. He relates the circumstances in which he was able to draw on those lessons to develop the most successful program in the United States - the Meyerhoff Scholars Program -- for educating African Americans who go on to earn doctorates and M.D.-Ph. D.s in the natural sciences and engineering. And, lastly, he turns to a discussion of how important it is for research universities the seek inclusive excellence, work across the educational spectrum from Kindergarten through graduate school to ensure student success"--
