About this item

Teachers Undefeated is about teachers and how they continue to do the best for their students. They do so despite clumsy interventions from governments who have no idea about how difficult they have made school life. They do so despite the fact they are pressured into producing dubious outcomes and are over-scrutinized in every aspect of their professional lives. The book is filled with testimony from teachers who still bring energy, creativity and commitment to everything they do.

The book explains how the political and economic circumstances of the past forty years play out in our classrooms on a daily basis. It discusses possibilities for collective resistance to policies that reduce the enjoyment of learning to a succession of test rehearsals and exam preparation. It is a book for serving teachers, those about to enter the profession, parents and anyone interested in preserving a rounded education for our children.
