'I enjoyed reading the contributions in this book. Some of the articles, and most of the ideas were familiar, but I still felt there was a wealth of useful material covered. I would certainly recommend this book to trainee and new teachers, to education tutors, and anyone interested in understanding the complexities of schooling.' - Dr Keith Taber, Escalate
