  • To be read by every educator.

    I have never been moved as much by any book as this one. Stroud weaves a biographical narrative that weighs heavily with personal tragedy and the foibles contemporary educational policy making. As a teacher if 16 years in Australia, this is the story we have waited to see and one can only hope that those with the power to change things take note. We’re not waiting for Superman, our hero teachers are here and they are suffering greatly, wanting for an advocate to do something.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Teacher--- an excellent read

    A teacher who had to retire from teaching has written what forced her to think about her profession and what was going wrong in the job. the story makes one laugh, cry, and offer a lot of sympathy because we have all met children like what she had to deal with every day

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Sad but true......

    Sad but true story of how the academics are running the professions. Sadly, they have no idea of what happens at the coal face, and as long as they can justify their existence by their ever increasing 'measurements', more wonderful teachers, nurses and other professionals will be lost to these vocations. Gabbie's story reflects this beautifully. Easy to read.

    Thanks for your feedback!
