Summary

The remarkable true story of one man’s fight to turn the tide of low expectations, this account follows educator Chris Sarra from his humble beginnings in a large Italian-Aboriginal family to his triumphant achievements, including becoming Queensland's Australian of the Year, the subject of ABC's Australian Story, and one of the most outspoken and recognized educators in Australia. Attempting to better Indigenous education, Sarra transformed the Cherbourg State School into a national success story, but not without controversy along the way—Sarra battled the media, the education system, and a culture of complacency. This inspiring autobiography shows why Indigenous children no longer hope for a better education; they can expect it.
