I've just finished reading James Rainsford's book for the second time. Aside from the humour and the ascerbic wit of an author who clearly knows and understands our educational system there is clearly a man who feels deeply about our children and the future that decent education can afford them. He rants about the inadequacies of the system, the pettiness and the poor management which eventually lead to the disenchantment of not only the pupils but the good teachers who genuinely are trying to make a difference. A brilliant, funny read but with a serious message.
