Requires Improvement

£1,834

Jim Tovey teaches drama. He's a nice guy, he's good at his job, but as OFSTED say - he 'Requires Improvement'. 

Getting under the skin of education in 21st century Britain, this book deals with the issues that explain why all the teachers you know always look tired and are becoming increasingly grumpy souls. 

For teachers, this book will bring you a smile as you see your classroom brought to life. For everyone else, you'll finally get an answer to that universal question "Why do they always need so many holidays?"

Can Jim cope with the pressure of the upcoming exams? How do you juggle having a new baby and getting the best out of your Year 11's? Is it possible to keep your sanity and put on a school show? 

All these questions and more are answered in this brand new novel from Paul Jenkins!

Risks and challenges

This is an extremely demanding project; through writing, to proof reading, finding cover artists & illustrators, printing, marketing and publicity.

Luckily with a very supportive network of friends & family these obstacles have all been overcome or in the case of working with other artists - commissions have been agreed.

Producing a new work always comes with some risk, but with the financial back of your good selves, we can definitely do it!
