REBLOG: Why teaching is terrible…

Hilary Custance Green just published a great review of SEARCHING FOR MALUMBA over at her place.  Here’s a quick excerpt, and check out the rest of it at her site.

Each entry comes hot, often scorchingly so, off the keyboard and varies from hilarious to heart-breaking. You read this with your mouth hanging open in shock about where these kids are coming from and what kind of homes they go back to. You also read it with sympathetic fury at the authorities wilful misunderstanding about testing, teacher pay and worst of all the nature of children themselves. In contrast, you also read with delight and outright laughter about children and teacher’s successes and gaffes.
