9781858563596: Carry On Teachers: Representations of the Teaching Profession in Screen Culture

In the world of screen culture, teachers are unfailingly represented as charismatic figures, able to tackle the deprivations their students face and to form special relationships with them that none of their staff colleagues can. But how realistic are such representations, and-- more importantly - what do real world teachers think about their reel world counterparts?

This book takes a closer look at the charismatic teacher as portrayed in films such as Blackboard Jungle, "To Sir, With Love" and "Dead Poets Society" and in television series such as Teachers. It considers the eccentric, resilient or romantic - but always charismatic- teacher in inner city schools, private or public schools and contrasts them with the views of practising teachers.

"Carry on Teachers" will be essential to media and cultural studies courses but is designed as much for teachers and those coming into the profession.
