“she now sees good exam results as the ticket out of poverty”

Anna Soubry:

Re-educated, thankfully, is not some “life change” bible for the bored middle aged. Kellaway was a successful and high-powered woman before she left the Financial Times (and a handsome income) after 32 years and a back catalogue of 1,032 columns. Here she writes with warmth, wit and honesty, turning her real life experiences of teaching in a Hackney school into what I hope will become a serious debate about what education is for.
