So, in my following reaction I am analyzing the movie “Hard Lessons” according to the book chapter Becoming Trustworthy Leader, and find out to what extend Mr. McKenna could be considered trustworthy leader. The movie “Hard Lessons” is based on the real story where new principal Mr. George McKenna of Washington High School is appointed to fight against violence, gangs and drugs users at school. He is aimed to change all the inner system of the school reforming learning and teaching styles, and inviting parents to contribute to the school change. Despite all hardships he faces, Mr McKenna does not quit, moreover he meets his goal establishing safer environment, school disciplinary and improving the education. If we compare McKenna’s practices to the book chapter “Becoming a Trustworthy Leader” where the central idea is building trust to make a successful school , it is clearly seen in the movie that he is trying to use different ways to foster trust among teachers, students ,parents and him to make better and effective school.

In my opinion that takes some guts to do. Also after the incident that happened to with him and his best friend Jack Will where Jack Will said something mean about Auggie, he still showed up and carried on with his school life. Also he tried to talk his way out of getting a beating by the 7th graders that were bothering him and Jack even though they were two times his size. This what I think August’s character traits
Instead of ignoring and leaving him to defy the odds on his own, a lot of the characters became good friends of Arnold. Students in the new school helped Arnold out and helped him grow into a better life for himself. They gave Arnold hope, friendship, and something to look forward to in his life. To me, that is what American equality is. Compared to the novel The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part- Time Indian is more welcoming to different races in an all white community.
