The author has many tales to tell. He recalls Brents pioneering programme for equality, praised by government reports but assassinated by the press as a conspiracy of race spies. And the creation of Equality Assurance in Schools, a book to compensate for the National Curriculum Councils failure to issue guidelines for education in a multicultural society. He reflects on education for spiritual development, on the importance of stories, on the issue of hybridity. He pays moving tribute to a pioner of antiracist education, David Ruddell, and addresses a much younger friend on her cpming of age. He satirizes the governments educational reforms and parodies quangocrats and quallispeak.
