In 1998, PRIMETIME aired a report on this inspirational story about a group of at-risk high-schoolers and their teacher: “Teacher Erin Gruwell finds a unique way to inspire her students to learn, and in doing so, dramatically changes their lives from hopelessness and despair to a future of limitless possibilities.”

The Freedom Writers Foundation promotes acceptance and innovative teaching methods in classrooms around the country. For more information, visit www.freedomwritersfoundation.org
