There are sixteen million children growing up in poverty in America. They have the same God-given potential as children in wealthier communities, but on average they achieve at significantly lower levels.

"A compelling call to a new generation of Christians to fight poverty and injustice through committing themselves to education. Nicole Baker Fulgham is a leader who gives me hope for the future of the church and for educational equality in America. Her passion and dedication to her faith and to tackling one of the greatest challenges of our time is clear on every page. Anyone looking for a practical and faithful means of changing the world should read this book at once."
