Where to find a book about teaching by a teacher? All I could find were grim behavioural manuals that all started with 'Getting The Buggers To...' or alternatively the comfort read, those nostalgic fests about a village school in the 1950s and 1960s. 'Miss Read' has to deal with a grumpy caretaker and a faulty boiler, a different universe from testing, league tables and Ofstead inspections.
This book is the reality check about primary teaching in the new millennium. Read on. There is plenty of biting humour aimed at children, parents and teachers...mainly teachers. But in the main I'm raging at the dying of the light, the light of creativity, the light of imagination and the love of learning.
We need to address this question - what the hell are they doing to our children?
