If you are looking for a bestseller to bestow upon your teacher, 'Never Fade Away', authored by William Hart, would be the best bet. Go through the synopsis of the book, given below.
In 'Never Fade Away', the author William Hart portrays a typical scenario in higher education. The book is about corruption in the California university system, in the way the immigrant students studying there are treated. The students are not only misunderstood, but also treated indifferently. The main narrator of the book is depicted as an english teacher, John Goddard, who is a veteran of the war in Vietnam. The second narrator is one of his students - Tina Le. She is Vietnamese, a survivor of a horrific escape from Vietnam. She is alone in California haunted by the loss of her family.
The story unfolds, as the teacher and the student alternately tell the story of their relationship and Goddard's fight against the system, with Tina Le caught in the middle of the battle. John Goddard's story is one of a frustrated teacher, hating the bureaucratic system and his colleagues, but dedicated to his students and their success. Thus, he becomes a hero amongst the students. On the other hand, the rest of the faculty at this institution feels that he is coddles the students, who don't have the potential to succeed as evidenced by their scores in the introductory english classes. This is really a story about the use and abuse of power in higher education, where faculty members have all the power and students have none.
