Blank Check, a Novel: What If You Were Asked to Help Reinvent Public Schools?
Aaron Smith, author
This story takes place on a fictional U.S. island, but the inspiration that evolves could help reshape public schools in America. After serving his country as an Army Ranger, high school principal Josiah Rollins quits in disgust over the broken educational system he can no longer serve. Little does he know this impulsive act would lead him to an unbelievable opportunity to change everything and serve his country and students in the way he always dreamed. Inspired and funded by a now-billionaire war buddy, Josiah tests his educational theories in a place with low standards and poor student performance: the American Caribbean Islands. The mission is simple: give teachers the autonomy and the freedom to teach and provide the community with the power to make schools the center of their community. But many people of color on the island are not happy about the project, nor do they trust off-islanders selling them new ideas. Learn how Rollins wins over the people and the students, by transforming the community and the economy into the American Dream.
