    Writer, teacher and journalist Kate Clanchy's Some Kids I Taught and What They Taught Me is an important, funny and candid memoir that offers a stunning insight into life inside British state schools.

    Regarded by His Dark Materials author Philip Pullman as 'the best book on teachers and children and writing that I've ever read', the book finds Kate looking back over the past three decades working in schools and celebrating the creativity, passion and practical nous of teachers.

    She recalls sex education classes with a group of 13-year-olds; working in a school's 'inclusion unit' to try and improve the fortunes of children who preferred not to learn; and nurturing a multi-cultural poetry group full of migrants and refugees.
