Many people are not as fortunate as those profiled in Faces of Learning. They spend their entire academic careers hating school and teachers and may even drop out. This was only addressed by three people profiled in the book because they were once those kids hating school. This is not to take away from the power in the 50 stories but to add light on the other side of the education spectrum. The experiences shared are extremely interesting and fascinating. They show the strength of talented and caring teachers. Teachers have a lot of power in their hands, and when they misuse it they fail their students. These are the students who do not have a defining moment in their education. The system is not perfect but there are bright spots and Faces of Learning shows them.
