A huge thank you to all the people who helped it along its way and a particular thanks to those who took a chance on it.

At the end, Amanda was on the hot-glaze spray gun, spraying the tarts with gel to keep it all together. Where there was no road map of how to navigate this, Naomi Fisher has written this crucial book that reflects very clearly what is going wrong for so many children in our education system and how to help them.

Publication dates are subject to change (although this is an extremely uncommon occurrence overall). She is the mother of two and the author of several books on psychology, education and mental health. She gives courage to parents who conclude that enough is enough and who decide to withdraw their child - either to create a more self-directing environment at home or in a different kind of school. It is accepted by you that Daunt Books has no control over additional charges in relation to customs clearance. Have recommended it to 20+ people how were thinking about the effect school has on their children, or simply question some of the methods used in many schools.

Now that schools have reopened, most seem to have forgotten how ridiculous the material their children are having to learn actually is, and also just how counterintuitive the way it is they are expected to learn it - parents are just relieved it’s no longer on them. Even when, at age fourteen, they do get to make some decisions, it’s usually between which classroom they sit in and what information they will be tested on, rather than anything more significant.As the parent of a child that didn't fit a one-size-fits-all system, and the founder of an organisation set up to effect change, I am well aware of the level of anxiety which can be triggered by traditional schooling.

I approached the publisher of every book which I thought would be bought by the same people as my book. It feels even more desperately important since families have been expected to recreate school at home during lockdown which for most has been traumatic and near impossible. When I worked for Druckers, I could have been allowed to choose when I went on my break, or the speed I thought that the profiterole machine should be set at. I was just amazed at how much sense it makes and how differently we should be embracing the education of our children, especially those who are neurodiverse. When Greta started to act, starting a school strike which spread around the world, she started being able to eat and live again.

In fact, when children leave school to be home-educated, one of the things they often do first is refuse to change out of their pyjamas or refuse to brush their hair. Whether you are an educator or a parent, this book highlights not only the damage we are doing to children in the name of educating them, but also how things can be done differently.

Profiteroles came along the belt, I had to grab two, put them on the spikes, and – ‘thunk’ – the machine filled them with cream. Faces came and went, and we only got to know each other if, by chance, we were sent on our break at the same time.
