Those Who Can Teach by David Grant

Hardback, 2003 , 389pages, very good condition

"He who can, does. He who cannot, teaches." George
Bernard Shaw's famous aphorism is more than a little
unkind to those brave souls who face the vicissitudes
of adolescent growth every day, let alone the attention
of bureaucrats, politicians, editorial writers and even
parents sometimes whose attitudes towards secondary
teachers have, over the years, ranged from admiration
to scepticism, to distinct unfriendliness. The author,
therefore, has taken the liberty in the title of this book
to make some slight adjustments to Shaw's words.

This reflects his belief that teachers have rarely been
accorded the respect their multi-faceted skills,
professionalism, and dedication deserve. Having said
that, hard-working and able teachers gain immense
fulfilment when they see the positive changes they
inculcate in their students ? intellectual, cultural, sporting
and spiritual development. The vocation can be hugely
rewarding but is done at the cost of constant fatigue and
frustration as colleagues around them quit ? complaining
of low pay, intolerable workloads and decreasing status ?
for better-paid jobs with less stress.
