Jason: Ward of the State is Mary J. Peterson's debut memoir. It is the compelling story of commitment and care of a student who became a ward of the state long after she had been his first grade teacher. Mary guided Jason as well as his brother, forging a bond that goes beyond blood ties. Her love and focus on the importance of education helped them survive the "System," attend college and become successful adults. This story proves that education and achievement are attainable goals, regardless of a child's circumstances.
