Written with passion, care and a deep understanding of the issues, Obstetrics for Schools gets under the skin of what schools and school leaders can do to address inequity in education. Full of practical ideas, down-to-earth strategies and authentic case studies, it doesn't just point the way to eliminating failure and combatting disadvantage amongst young people - it shows us the way too. Macfarlane also offers a refreshing departure from so much academic writing that too often considers and analyses the problems but leaves us floundering for practical solutions.
Obstetrics for Schools is a triumph, and so timely too. I love it and will be recommending it everywhere I go.
