A book that s full of humour, provocation and untarnished common sense - and which fights the all-important cause of good teachers and their pupils. --Geoff Barton, Headteacher, King Edward VI School
Phil Beadle always imbues the latest crazy top-down policy with timeless bottom-up good sense and wit. --John Dunford, Chair, Whole Education, Chair, WorldWide Volunteering, Chair, Chartered Institute of Educational Assessors
Beadle`s great strength lies in the fact that behind the ire and the feisty polemic lies a lot of thought and humility of his own, and plenty of humanity too. --Gerald Haigh, former teacher, head teacher and school governor and author
