A scrabrously funny look inside the classroom from a teacher who has had enough of a system that is on its knees and with morale at rock-bottom. Intoning his mantra of 'July, July, July!' the anonymous author - still a serving secondary school teacher - ranges over his teaching career from his student practice to the present day: from colleagues praying for a minor heart attacks so they can get six months paid leave and a foot in the door of early retirement, to the increasing alienation of young people and the alarming rise in mental health issues and self-harming.

Reasoning that it's either laugh or cry, this teacher does both. Heartfelt and seriously funny, Class War is a diary account written as therapy, and an inside look like no other at the pressure-cooker that is a secondary school.

Hilarious, heart-breaking and impassioned, this is a book about the value and importance of good teachers and good schools in a world where lack of resources and ever increasing demands place intolerable strains on them, Class War is a heartfelt portrait of the profession of teaching and a state education system where no one should be left behind but too many are.

The Author has been an English teacher for twenty five years and has combined his teaching with a successful career as a screenwriter.
