5th Impression. Michael Croft in the Observer: “This is the noblest, most moving, least sentimental, account of life in a modem school and ofa teacher’s struggles with his pupils and with himself that I have come across. Set in the East End, it deals with familiar problems of indiscipline, illiteracy, overcrowding, delinquency and promiscuity, yet it is in no sense another secondary modem shocker. It is the story of how a young teacher with no training or experience is confronted, as new untrained teachers invariably seem to be, with the toughest class in the school.”
