Francis Gilbert candidly describes the roller coaster ride in which he was trained to be a teacher, his terrifying first lesson and his even more frightening experiences in his first job at Truss comprehensive, one of the worst schools in the country.
Francis Gilbert is the author of the best-selling I'm a Teacher, Get Me out of Here!, based on his own teaching experiences. His most recent book Yob Nation (Portrait 2006) was described by the Mail on Sunday as 'a devastating analysis of our society'. He lives in East London.
