This review is from: It's Your Time You're Wasting: A Teacher's Tales of Classroom Hell (Paperback)
From my experience of secondary education in a deprived inner city school, I have to say that there is nothing in the book that surprised me. It may be a crumb of comfort to Frank that there are other teachers who are buckling under the same pressures as him and his colleagues.
This book is wittily written, with Frank's unique attitude to discipline showing through on many occasions. I wonder if Frank knows any primary school teachers who are willing to commit their views to print? It would be interesting to find out why so many kids, sorry, learners, manage to get to the age of 11 without being able to read or write.
