New to the Library: Politics and the Primary Teacher

In his new book  Politics and the Primary Teacher, Peter Cunningham addresses teachers and all those concerned with primary schools. He points out that it’s almost impossible to avoid the politics of education when it appears daily in the news media. His book aims to  support the reader’s understanding of the many complex political issues which affect the life and work of every primary school teacher. As Peter states in the final chapter, all those involved in primary education ‘need to remain alert to the political dynamics and be ready to engage in an informed way with parents, local community and in national debates.’ This book is therefore essential reading.
