By turns hilarious, sobering, and downright horrifying, this book tells you the unvarnished truth about teaching.
I'm a Teacher, Get me Out of Here contains the sort of information that you won't find in any school prospecti, government adverts, newspaper articles, or Hollywood film.
In this astonishing memoir, Francis Gilbert candidly describes the remarkable way in which he was trained to be a teacher, his terrifying first lesson and his even more frightening experiences in his first job at Truss comprehensive, one of the worst schools in the country.
Follow Gilbert on his rollercoaster journey through the world that is the English education system; encounter thuggish and charming children, terrible and brilliant teachers; learn about the sinister effects of school inspectors and the teacher's disease of 'controloholism'; spy on what really goes on behind the closed doors of inner city schools.
