His book is titled In A Class Called Special in which Dr White took the opportunity to explain the rather appalling experiences he had to endure due to his condition.
In the book, he explained that due to his disabilities, he had 7th-grade level in some of his subjects and 5th-grade level in others when he graduated from high school.
He went on to reveal that he had to sit for a specific math remedial 12 different times and had to even take a while before he went into college.
Dr White also recounted several times when he had to be on academic probation and suspension.
The GPA's he stated he had, lend credence to the fact that he has truly struggled through school. From community college to Bachelors degree to Master's and Doctorate, he has had 2.3, 2.9, 3.0 and 3.67 respectively.
