Published by AuthorHouseBooks
Robert Kimball dropped out of school after the 9th grade, became a career Army officer serving two combat tours in Vietnam, earned a doctorate in educational leadership, and later served as a school administrator and University lecturer. He became a whistleblower on the dropout crisis and featured on CBS 60 Minutes II, NOW on PBS, the New York Times, and the Washington Post. He was a witness to historic events from 1950 to the present and served as an advocate for civil rights for over 50 years. This memoir describes a childhood environment of poverty as one of twelve children. The author discusses military duty during race riots in Los Angeles and on Army bases in the 60’s and 70’s, combat in the jungles of Vietnam, and a military career that culminated in commanding nuclear missiles in Europe. The book also covers a second career as a high school principal, and the retaliation he endured after receiving national media attention for exposing the “Texas Miracle” that was based on falsified reports. The author explains the scandal and details involving his lawsuit against a Texas school district for retaliation and later a lawsuit against him by a for-profit educational services corporation.
