Frank Chalk is an ordinary teacher in an ordinary British school, a school where the kids beat up the teachers, get drunk and take drugs - when they can be bothered to turn up. It's Your Time You're Wasting is Chalk's bleak but blackly humorous diary of his final year in the modern education system. He fights apathy (his own and everyone else's), battles the tearaways and worries about the few conscientious pupils, recording his experiences in a dry and very readable manner. He offers top tips for dealing with unruly children and their parents, muses on the shortcomings of the staff (including his own) and even spots the occasional spark of hope amid all the despair. His book will horrify (and amuse) millions of parents and will become a must-read for many of the country`s teachers.

I found this book after reading, and loving, Wasting Police Time by PC David Copperfield. (There was an extract from It's Your Time You're Wasting in the back}.
It didn't disappoint. Frank Chalk is hilarious.
He writes about his teaching life and how he deals with the many "difficult" pupils, parents and teachers he comes across.
A great read for parents who want to know what really goes on in the average British secondary school and teachers who will be nodding their heads in recognition.
It would be even funnier if it wasn't all true!
