"This is a brilliant collection of anecdotes from more than 100 teachers, pupils and others about their experiences in over 180 schools from the far north of New Zealand to Invercargill and Stewart Island, to the Chathams and Great Barrier.
"Through two world wars, economic depression, the birth of new technology, and significant shifts in educational ideology, children attended schools and teachers took on the challenge of introducing new knowledge and helping them to develop new skills and achieve their goals.
"Their stories are sometimes sad, sometimes hilarious, sometimes serious, but all add to the grand picture of the development of education in the unique country."
