Playing Dolls, Canadian Experience Required

But despite the rigidity and the layering of the bureaucratic chaos in a system that does not seem to work with anything foreign, I came to understand...

In Search of the Blue Lotus: A Feminist Counter-Narrative to the Dominant Hegemonic Discourse

In Search of the Blue Lotus: A Feminist Counter-Narrative to the Dominant Hegemonic Discourse by S. Sandra SukhanMany of us move from childhood to adulthood without much thought of how the events of our childhood impact our lives today. Some memories are happy; others sad or traumatic. Some we remember - childhood play days, the earthy smell of rain after a dry spell, and the feeling a new mother gets when she holds her baby; others we wish to or choose to forget - thick black smoke from riots, feelings of fear because of death threats, and the uncertainty of life in another country. In this very personal diary, Sandra, through a first-person reflexive narrative, shares some of her memories of growing...

Heads and Tales

Heads and Tales by Maggie GeorgeAsk yourself when you last stood at the school gate wondering, with other 'perplexed of parent-ville', at the machinations grinding the wheels of your child's school. List the times you waxed lyrical while participating in a playground spleen-venting-fest. Call to mind how you indulged in spurious rage with friends after an OFSTED inspection resulted in an inexplicable judgement. Remember the frustration at the seemingly endless process of 'letting a teacher go' while your child suffered day after day of inadequate teaching. How many of us know the answers...the real answers, which fundamentally...

Greetings Noble Sir

Greetings Noble Sir by Nigel FlaxtonNigel Flaxton enjoyed a satisfying career in education covering the second half of the 20th century, This is an account of some of his experiences from old-fashioned monastic seclusion in training college just after the Second World War to three headships of new schools, the last being an upper school of over 900 students. Written with gentle humour, often at his own expense, he also comments on the very considerable changes in education in a broad sense during that period. He includes nearly two years in the RAF, to which he was frustratingly called up shortly after he qualified and his unprecedented...

From Nothing To Something

From Nothing To Something by Mary Clark AlvarezThis book deals with the story of a normal every day American family who dared to obey God at all cost. In a practical way it shows that even in 21st century America, God has the very same desire to show Himself as miraculous and powerful as He did in the pages of the Bible. An American family of six obeyed God and gave away everything. God then led them to New Mexico and the Pueblo Indians and then to Africa to preach the gospel. The book shows that all things are possible for God in a most practical way.

He was also the center of the liberal establishment—a circle of influential men who fought to keep the United States true to ideals and extend the full range of American opportunities to all citizens of every class and color. Using Brewster as his focal...
