About this product
- DescriptionWhen we talk about education, it's easy to lose track of the human element: the stories behind the statistics; the people behind the stories. In this ground-breaking work, author Ben Faccini and film-maker Greg Villalobos have combined to give young people a voice, through interviews and workshops. The result is a unique picture, sometimes disturbing, often inspiring, of what young people want from education, what stands in their way, and the difference a teacher can make. It includes an introduction by Meryl Noronha, one of the Teach First teachers featured in the BBC3 documentary 'Tough Young Teachers'.
- Author BiographyGreg Villalobos has spent over a decade working with young people at the fringes of mainstream society. In 2004 he co-founded Bold Creative, a digital agency that helps organisations campaign with and on behalf of the young people they serve, winning numerous awards in the process. He has a long running relationship with Teach First, and contributes to many of its campaigns. Ben Faccini worked in education for a United Nations agency, and went on to write extensively on issues in the developing world, particularly street children, working children and innovations in education. He is writer-inresidence at a London school for First Story, a charity which fosters literacy and creativity in young people from challenging schools. Meryl Noronha appeared in the six-part BBC 3 documentary Teaching Impossible. The programme charted her own journey from being a pupil at an underfunded state school in a deprived London borough, to a graduate and Teach First teacher.
