David McCullough, Jr.'s high school commencement address of 2012, dubbed 'You Are Not Special' was a tonic for children, parents, and educators alike. With wit and a perspective earned from raising four children and teaching high school students for nearly thirty years, McCullough expands on his speech, taking a hard look at hovering parents, questionable educational goals, professional college prep, electronic distractions, and club sports, and advocates for a life of passionate engagement.
