The Professionals

Better Teachers,Better Schools

  • Phil Revell
In this book Phil Revell takes a hard look at the teaching profession. Where do Britain’s teachers come from – and why do so many abandon their career after a few years in the job? What kind of teachers do we want in our schools and what kind of profession are today’s wannabe teachers entering? Is it a profession at all? Phil Revell writes with the clarity and style that makes him a regular on The Guardian’s education pages, and with an understanding that comes from having worked in schools for nearly twenty years. His analysis will shock some teachers and educationalists, but parents, teachers and policy makers will be struck by the power and logic of his argument. The Professionals is the result of a year’s research during which the author followed the progress of over 50 students through their teacher training and spoke to teachers, teacher trainers and government agencies. The book will be essential reading for policy makers, teacher educators and senior management in schools.
