As a boy in Baltimore, Michael Phillips had big dreams and big potential. He wanted to become a successful lawyer to help people like those he saw struggling in his neighborhood. He was intelligent, industrious, and inspired by the example of his parents. But one teacher's low expectations derailed his dreams--beginning a path of trauma, loss, and crime. Like so many other children, he started slipping through the cracks of a broken society.
Michael's potential was diverted into selling drugs in a life-or-death game that ended with his arrest and the nightmarish prospect of thirty years in prison. Then a judge gave him a stunning choice, one that would turn his life around'through a fair chance for a good education.
This inspiring story, Wrong Lanes Have Right Turns, connects the dots between our vulnerable youth, the schools that often fail them, the prison cells that often confine them, and the transformation that is possible for any of us. Is also shows how one man has devoted his life to enacting change that helps vulnerable 'at-promise' young people. And he invites you to join him in turning the incredible potential of rising generations in the right direction.
