Teachers’ Legal Rights and Responsibilities
A guide for trainee teachers and those new to the profession
Author: Jon Berry
“It's the myth-busting that makes this book so refreshing and authoritative. In 50 pages it gives you the real story on all those areas you worry about, including school trips, discipline, child abuse and special needs. The cover is one of the funniest I've seen on an education book.”
