Kevin candidly presents the highs and lows of a teaching career spanning four decades, and useful advice on how to motivate children to learn. The book is intended to appeal to practising professionals, anyone considering teaching as a career, and those with an interest in what goes on behind school doors. Kevin’s style relies heavily on humour, particularly when recalling children’s mischievous natures.        The fun element is being systematically squeezed out of learning and teaching. Fear of failure underpins the ethos of many of our schools. Children and teachers too often find themselves operating in a stifling educational culture that prioritises performance data. Educational success is defined by the measurable.Child-centred education has become an anachronism. The case is argued that individual children and their unique talents and abilities matter. Radical changes to school practices are advocated if our institutions are to do justice to school populations of the future.

Born in Carshalton, Surrey, Kevin Hall spent his childhood in Bath, Somerset. He attended the City of Bath Grammar School, then moved to Isleworth to study at Borough Road Teacher Training College. He settled in Hounslow with his wife, Lindsey, where they raised a family, and he taught for 38 years in two local boys’ secondary schools.
