Play ethic's the thing
"I found the TES(S) inspiring. So many experts straining to translate their findings into useable tools for pressured teachers; so many teachers trying to raise their sights above their daily labours, and remind themselves of why they wanted to walk into a classroom in the first place.
"And so much prose with a pulse - mixing experience and theory, practical common sense and starry-eyed idealism.
"If only the media servicing other sectors of society - like business, or science, or politics, or even the arts - had the same human capaciousness about it."
The figures that feature in our pages strike Kane as "a bunch of hurried, straight-talking generalists: easily moved to passion about their jobs, but acutely aware that a whole society is examining their daily performance.
Principles and pragmatism jostle each other vigorously like hungry kids in a dinner queue."
Rush out and buy this book, we'd say.
