"I was in prison before I was even born." So begins the story of Dr. Victor Rios who, by age 15, was a high school dropout and gang member with three felony convictions and a death wish. When a teacher's quiet persistence, a mentor's moral conviction, and his best friend's murder converge, Rios' path takes an unexpected turn." THE PUSHOUTS" documents the inspirational story of Oakland native Victor Rios, now a UC professor, who trains educators to help students who are at risk of being 'pushed out' of the school system.
