He points out that the success of children is more about how well teachers commit to the principles and routines that bring about success. He stresses the importance of having meaningful relationships with the students and argues that academic achievement is not determined by poverty or cultural background. The video concludes with Dr. Betty Jo Webb presenting Dr. Hilliard with an award for his service to the education of African American students.
