MARYVILLE, MO (2009-10-01) Methamphetamine making and immigrant meat-packing workers are changing the faces inside our rural classrooms.
That's one of the messages last night in Maryville from educator and social activist Erin Gruwell. She's the real-life teacher as portrayed by Academy Award-Winner Hilary Swank. Gruwell says changing troubled students lives is not just a Harlem or Los Angeles issue. Grewell's "Freedom Writers Foundation" teaches students and teachers how to put their personal challenges and stories down on paper to begin to change themselves.
