Gove needs to learn this book by rote and be tested on it.
on 27 May 2015
Fantastic. Every teacher in the UK state system will read this saying out loud, "That happened to me!" Sadly, there was nothing here that took me by surprise - which is why I no longer teach in the UK state system after 18 years. Charlie Carroll is strikingly honest and his passion for the job and the heart he has for the children, failed by our education system and society, leap from every word. Every politician should read this and Gove should be made to learn it by heart and be tested on it. An honest and heartbreaking account of the reality of working in schools where poverty,funding and lack of hope thwart the teacher at every turn.
