Looking through the eyes the other side of a classroom
The book touches a sentimentality of great scales.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
No it is not something like "Goodbye Mr Chips" because it is in fact very real. It touches on sore points - the Miners Strike in the North East, the embittered winters and the hardships the NorthEast faced - as well as problem pupils, dealing with dyslexia and the foreboding cane. Yet there are always little ancedotes which bring tears of laughter to your eyes, such as fields collapsing before sports day and an embittered janitor with not much sense.
Its something most of us to relate to from kids viewpoint - a sharp injustice yet with justice tinged within it. But it's lovely to see book from the teachers point of view as well as to read it.
