How can we help our inner city children when schools continue to fail them? Who offers practical helps that have been tested and proven effective? Fantastic Voyage offers a helpful and hopeful tool for educators at every level. It also serves as a guide for communities to know how to better love and serve their neighbors and advocate for sustained improvement in their local school systems.

Lee Roland believes every child deserves the best. He shares his experience at Tulakes Elementary to inspire educators to passionately work to ensure that EVERY child succeeds—regardless of color or class—and to encourage communities to fight for a quality public education for ALL children.
