A memoir of the author's twenty-six years spent teaching high school in Ontario, written as a letter to former students, and unflinchingly critical of a system which he saw as sucking the best out of the fodder forced into its ravenous maw, and at the other end churning out homogenised husks. "If you have ever wondered about the process of marking and grading, or had doubts about the value of humiliation as an incentive to learn, or if you believe that the same rules of ethics and the same means of earning respect should apply to both student and teacher, then this book will interest you." 303 pages. This copy signed on title page. An unread copy, internally tight and clean. (C/JR)
