Summary Describes the success of the Frederick Douglass Academy, a public school in Harlem created to provide high quality education to underprivileged students. An inspiring autobiography which outlines the leadership principles, or "Monroe Doctrine", of this charismatic and enormously well-respected educator who founded the Frederick Douglass Academy in Harlem. The "Monroe Doctrine" is based on a belief that caring instructors, a disciplined but creative environment, and a refusal to accept mediocrity can transform the lives of inner-city kids. Today the Academy is one of the finest schools in the country, registering the third highest SAT scores in New York City.
