Episode Description

In the first half hour, Patricia interviews Derek W. Black, a Professor at the University of South Carolina School of Law and the author of "Ending Zero Tolerance: The Crisis of Absolute School Discipline."

He will also talk about the solutions that his book provides for this issue. In the second half hour, Patricia interviews Ryan O'Reilly, a professional speaker, executive coach, and the author of "Shifting Gears." Shifting Gears is a book that explains how to harness your drive to reach your potential and accelerate success.
