Bad Education




An anthology ranging across politics and policy, pedagogy, performance, people and personalities and Phil’s great passion, literacy and English teaching.

Bad Education is a collection of Phil Beadle’s columns from The Guardian’s Education section and is a laugh a minute romp through more or less every aspect of British education over the last decade, which makes the occasional, entirely accidental, serious point.
