This book is about personal empowerment and the development of confidence, curiosity, and compassion in our public schools, and about what happens to children and adults when they are encouraged to follow their bliss. It tells how a progressive public school in Colorado has transformed lives for decades, while creating a community of life-long learners.  Lives of Passion, School of Hope points toward a future that may depend on the injection of heart, hope, and passion into our public schools. It is the story of the place of personal growth in public education, and how we can be inspired to create a better world.  Beginning as a bus driver and custodian, Rick Posner went on to teach in public schools for 30 years. After receiving his Ph.D. in 1989, he established his expertise in self-directed learning and in modern rites-of-passage curriculum, and is now a consultant for schools around the country.
