'How Not To Teach' published

How Not to Teach
If you thought reading Gervaise Phinn was like drinking a warm cup of tea this book will knock you over with the force of a vodka slammer. Mr Read survives the nightmare of planning, Ofsted and his headteacher... he also takes the class to Ireland, the House of Commons and wins a film award.

'it will take a bare knuckle fight to save its soul.'

In my voluntary work within the UN Disability Convention I have brought this to the attention (again) of the UN Convention and you can read my emailed report that I have sent today to some of my colleagues and peers within the UN Disability Convention and Disabled People's Movement and also Anne McGuire, Minister for Disabled People

Ever had the feeling that all politician’s are liars? Maybe when they tell you that thousands of pounds of debt just for getting an education is a good thing, or that it really was about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq? Ever thought that capitalism sucks, making the rich richer and screwing everyone else? Ever felt like staying in bed instead of going to work?
