This book takes the reader into the school classroom and shows the conditions of schools and teaching methods as they really are. This was a controversial book about the author's experiences of teaching in London. Still relevant today, it is an exciting read that was serialised in the Daily Mail. The system is supposed to turn out every child with a working knowledge of the three R's. However, far too many primary school leavers are illiterate or have difficulty in reading. This book concentrates on the experiences of pupils in their school before the school bell rings for the last time and they go out to the adult world. It describes the effects of radical educational reforms on the day-to-day lives of teacher and scholars and looks at teaching methods in a variety of primary, secondary and comprehensive schools in Britain's industrial cities.
