Gilbert is back and he's glad to be back. After three years of teaching at Truss, an inner-city sink school, Francis Gilbert has been offered a job in the English department at his old school, a nice suburban comprehensive. Like a prisoner out of Colditz, he feels like he's just landed a job in toytown.
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.
