Books Info:

The Travels of a Journey-man Teacher free pdf In this unusual book, Henry Pluckrose explores the way educational establishments (from kindergarten to university) in every nation state are built upon political expediency, the dogmas of its government and a historical legacy inherited from the past. The author describes schools he has visited in places far apart - in kilometres and philosophy - and reflects on their similarities and differences. Such comparisons can prove unsettling. The unrest in the urban backwaters of New York City in the 1970s has been echoed more recently in the streets of Brixton, Haringey, Bristol and Bradford. In his travels the author met and talked with teachers, parents, children and specialists in many other areas of the education service. Their voices are joined by those of the casual passer-by...like the health conscious Norwegian, the Swedish rabbit trainer and the proud owner of a large monkey.
