Product description

We have allowed powerful institutions to manipulate the fear of parents and teachers to the extent that neither can see how to proceed without being told what to think. This book explores how the so-called accountability and quality systems in the UK have been used to straightjacket teachers into compliance, even when flying in the face of emerging knowledge and understanding about learning. This is a narrative of hope. Of how the system could be different. It offers tales fromwithin the classroom of learning in spite, but without spite. Of hope, of laughter, of gentle subversion. "If you only read one book about teaching this year, then there's a compelling case to be made for ensuring it's this one." Teach Secondary, Issue 3.8, November 2014
