Summary:
Presenting material drawn from The Guardian's 'School I'd Like' competition, this book is a snapshot of how school is regarded by children across the UK during the first three months of 2001. The authors raise critical questions about the democratic processes involved in teaching and learning. This collection is vibrantly illustrated with children's essays, pictures, stories, designs, plans and poems. Analysis of this material will identify consistencies in the ways in which all children wish to learn, and highlight particular sites of 'disease' in the education infrastructure and everyday practice.
