Featuring John Quinones, ABC News correspondent and host of Primetime: What Would You Do?

John Quiñones shares his story of growing up in the barrio - poor and the child of migrant farm workers. Although Quiñones could not speak a word of English when he entered the first grade, his problems only grew worse as his teachers and school counselors in San Antonio insisted on railroading him through vocational programs like auto mechanics, wood shop, and metal shop - never, ever believing that he could be college material. But, when Quiñones reached high school, he met an English teacher who saw something in him and he entered the federal program Upward Bound, which was the beginning of his personal success story.
