By telling the stories of some of the kids she’s taught, as well as her own, Kate Clanchy (MBE) offers a candid, funny and moving insight into life in British state schools today.

Kate Clanchy wants to change the world and thinks school is an excellent place to do it. She invites you to meet some of the kids she has taught in her 30-year career. Join her as she explains everything about sex to a classroom of 13-year-olds. As she works in the school ‘Inclusion Unit’, trying to improve the fortunes of kids excluded from regular lessons because of their terrifying power to end learning in an instant. Or as she nurtures her multicultural poetry group, full of migrants and refugees, watches them find their voice and produce work of heartbreaking brilliance. While Clanchy doesn’t deny stinging humiliations or hide painful accidents, she celebrates this most creative, passionate and practically useful of jobs. Teaching today is all too often demeaned, diminished and drastically under-resourced. Some Kids I Taught and What They Taught Me will show you why it shouldn’t be.

'Kate Clanchy, a prizewinning poet, draws on 30 years of teaching in state schools to produce a “revelatory picture of school life, and a fascinating look at the role education plays”. Clanchy doesn’t dodge the hard knocks, but what comes through from her personal stories is the transformative power of good teaching.'
