How real student in the Escalante movie turned out

Those of you who saw the film, Stand and Deliver, might enjoy this piece I did for the Los Angeles Times on Sunday, about the only real student portrayed in the movie, and her unusual path to success. I will be away for a couple of weeks, but I have all the columns done and scheduled, so there should be something new here nearly every day.
