The teacher-student relationship is, perhaps, one of the most important connections that a person will ever have in life as it may shape the way he or she perceives the whole world. It is a relationship that thrives when both parties, especially the educator, firmly believe in the role of education to the development of a person in modern times. There are times when the student may come to doubt this but the teacher must never be the one who gives up.
Frank Biden, in his years of work with Mavericks in Education, has witnessed how there are times when educators have come to fail their students. In their insistence to uphold the rigid demands of the traditional learning system, they have come to judge some of their failing students as the ‘unteachables.’

Are there students that actually deserve that label? The people at Mavericks in Education think otherwise and they insist that teachers should avoid falling into the pitfall of disbelief. Instead, they advise educators to firmly hold onto their belief in the abilities of their students and tirelessly work to find a way to inspire the youth under their care to take charge of their own development.
