Product reviews for Living Contradiction

Dr Richard Woolley, Head, Centre for Education and Inclusion, Deputy Head (Research), Institute of Education, University of Worcester
Warren and Bigger present a highly engaging account of a teacher's journey from an approach founded in authoritarianism to one founded in respect and care: moving from discipline imposed by teachers, to developing pupils' self-discipline that is the result of self-learning. Warren's sense of being a product of the education system -“ and his progressing through to becoming a servant of the system, then its agent and, ultimately, a reflective practitioner -“ is made all the more powerful by the real life stories from young people and teachers, and from Warren himself. The move from compliance and confrontation to cooperation and care is compelling in its challenge to readers to review their professional practice and relationships.

Underpinned by research and personal reflection, Living Contradiction is a powerful challenge to the ways in which schools work.
