“The inspirational story of one man overcoming prejudice in a tough East End school.”
NO MAJOR SPOILERS
A tremendously inspiring book which ought to be read by all aspiring teachers and all those who have teaching as their profession in today’s world. A super guide to all the teachers of today which can guide them in guiding the young generation in the present school scenario.
E.R. Braithwaite who has no prior training in the teaching profession has in simple words guided and taught these young teenage children the way to live their life once they get out of school. He equipped them with the virtues of respect, nobility, honour and honesty which would take these young ones flying high in whatever work they would be doing in the future and to easily live the life that has been bestowed upon them in this savage world.
Though he himself was a victim of racism he undermined the good qualities in the white children and taught them to be bigger than the false social air that prevailed in the society.
