3.0 out of 5 stars An unlikable man, 7 Mar. 2015

This review is from: Angry Jogger (Kindle Edition)
I couldn't get on with the book because I didn't like the author, his achievements are fantastic but it's hard to find empathy for someone who self sabotages themselves over and over.

Great space opera series, I love the interchange between ground and space wars however why oh why did you have to end in the middle of a battle?

Get writing Doug because we can't wait too long.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible teacher writes a terrible book., 10 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I find it shocking the number of reviews that start off with `non teachers should read this'. Non teachers should read this if they would like to read about a soap opera school where the extremes of teaching are discussed without any of the highs. Frank Chalk disparages his colleagues who while they might not have as high expectations of their students they do want to be there for the kids whereas if there is any truth in what he is writing it seems that Frank certainly doesn't want to be.

I have worked in one of the most deprived council estates in the country for the last 3 years and while some of what he discusses happens the frequency his experiences occur makes me think that there is far more Waterloo Road than St Jude's.
To end I have to say that while he is quick to point the finger at the government and OFSTED teachers like Frank Chalk do far more damage than those organisations. A supply teacher because he can't hack real teaching and certainly not a real account of teaching in England.
