Description of this Book
It has controversy: I was labelled a 'dinosaur, a dissident and a traditionalist' - challenging NCEA was risky. But we were 'being sold a dog's breakfast.' But above all it has humour, a great deal of it: Did the male teacher who promised the women on the staff a staffroom lunch survive after serving up stale bread and water? How did dinner go when the raffle-winning teacher unwrapped his frozen chicken at home, only to find he'd won a very dead possum? This book is an insight into that world and its demands; it is an account of an extinguished career.
