This review is from: It's Your Time You're Wasting: A Teacher's Tales of Classroom Hell (Paperback)
'Frank Chalk' has done the unthinkable - exposed the horrors of our modern education system: violence, drugs, truancy, illiteracy and the absurd impotence of teachers when it comes to dealing with these issues.
I find his attitudes a little right-wing for my taste but he fully justifies himself and is a likeable author. His writing boldly highlights just how badly we are letting down children in this country, and makes me fearful for what society will be like as today's generation of schoolkids grows up.
Delivered in a light-hearted anecdotal style, this book is very accessible. I'll definitely be passing it round my friends - time spent on the bookshelf is time wasted, because if enough people read it you never know - something might start to change!

Mr. Hm Bennett says:
Anyone who thinks Frank Chalk is 'right-wing' is clearly delusional.
This book is spot on; too many of us live the nightmare depicted in this book and would regard the author's opinions nowhere near illiberal enough.
