Elizabeth Blake's search for her life's purpose takes her into the violent, emotional world of inner-city high schools as a science teacher. "No Child Left Behind? The true story of a teacher's quest" explores her inspirational fight for students others have left behind. Despite struggling with the stress of gangs, drugs, shootings and uncooperative administrators, the students capture her heart. While she searches for a way to reach them, they teach her to become a wiser, stronger person. Her final quest turns to discovering God's purpose for sending her on this difficult, and at times frightening, journey.
