Man Gives Up Six-Figure Salary to Teach at Poor School, Then 95% of His Students Go to Top Colleges

Post by Guest on Sat Aug 19, 2017 7:01 pm

This school teacher used to be a high-powered lawyer with a six figure salary – but he gave it all up so he could help young people in his home neighborhood, one of the poorest areas in England.
Before Mouhssin Ismail started teaching at the Newham Collegiate Sixth Form school in East London, he worked at the international law firm of Norton Rose Fulbright. 

After teaching for just one year, 190 of his 200 students are set to go to some of Britain’s best universities. Of that percentage, nine have been accepted to Oxford and Cambridge. One of the students has even been given an offer to study at MIT.

The 38-year-old economics instructor says that he first became inspired to work in education after becoming tired of impersonal financing. “After a couple of years, I felt unfulfilled,” said the teacher, according to the Daily Mail. “I didn’t think, ‘that’s great, I have just done another £50 million deal,’ I thought, ‘am I making a contribution to society?’”

I believe in the transformational nature of education and I want to give the most able students of Newham the very best chance of going to the most competitive universities in the country and abroad,” says Ismail.

“My vision for The NCS is to make sure that the young men and women that leave us have the skills and habits of mind to be able to become future leaders in their chosen profession and in society at large. They will be confident visionaries who seek out opportunities and find new ways of thinking.”

To you maybe Tommy, but the students results speak for themselves.

Granted this is just one year, if he replicates it next year with so many succeeding, will you say its guff?

So what is his record at Newham on those he taught since 2014?

Second, do you not think it takes time to find your feet in finding the best way to help teach kids the best way?

Do you think you can do it on the first day or the next year?

It takes time to perfect

So now, if next year he does not do well, then you would have a point

So your arguments are very weak Tommy
