A timely book At a time when (state) educators seem to receive nothing but criticism in the media (as opposed to parents and students), this book helps to redress the balance and explodes many of the misconceptions in the minds of politicians and often ignorant decison makers.

A good read. Very easy to read, accessible to all and has really challenged some of my existing views as well as strengthened them. Some chapters are not as engaging as other ones.
