About the Author:

Mary Compton is Past President of the UK National Union of Teachers, the largest teacher union in Europe, and currently isa practicing classroom teacher of modern languages and English as well as a trade union activist. Lois Weiner is Professor, Elementary and Secondary Education, New Jersey City University and the author of the AERA award-winning book Preparing Teachers for Urban Schools: Lessons from Thirty Years of School Reform, among others.

Review:

"In a time of attacks on the entire public sphere, we need to hear the voices of articulate defenders of more democratic visions. No institution can claim to be democratic when its employees are treated with disrespect. Compton and Weiner have produced a powerful collection that helps restore these voices and helps us understand why they are so deserving of our respect." - Michael W. Apple, John Bascom Professor of Curriculum and Instruction and Educational Policy Studies, University of Wisconsin, Madison; Author of Educating the "Right" Way

"Acomprehensive and vastly enlightening read for any teacher interested in the wider implications of what it is they do for a living. If you are a teacher and have ever wondered who it is that is pulling your strings, and how and why they are doing it, you ll find this book fascinating and frightening in equal measure." - Phil Beadle, Education Guardian columnist and UK teacher
