Category: Education
Synopsis
'A hugely reassuring, common-sense guide no parent of teenage boys should be without.' - Sunday Times In his bestselling An Intelligent Person's Guide to Education , Tony Little, former Head Master of Eton College, asks the fundamental questions about how we should make our schools and schoolchildren fit for the modern world. Published with a new preface by the author, this book will enlighten teachers, students and anxious parents alike, providing advice from the author's many years as a teacher, headmaster and governor in both independent schools and academies, in answer to the key issues concerning education. Tony Little explains the research behind how teenagers' brains function and how they act accordingly, discusses how to deal with sex, drugs and poor discipline, reassesses the meaning of 'character' in a child's education, and provides his own list of books every bright 16-year-old should read. In addition, he offers tips for parents on dealing with adolescents and communicating with their child's school. Drawing on a lifetime's work in schools, An Intelligent Person's Guide to Education is a refreshing, rational and original take on the most important stage in a child's development. An entertaining and essential book for teachers, parents and students interested in how education should serve our young people, now and in future.
