Description
How similar are the roles of parent and teacher? Is it true that the experience of parenthood imparts skills and understanding which make that parent a better teacher? In this fascinating and personal book, Pat Sikes explores the effect of parenthood on teachers. A large number of teachers are interviewed at length, and their responses show that parenthood affects their professional lives as deeply as it does their emotional lives. The author discusses the effect of parenthood on the ambitions and career prospects of teachers, and uncovers interesting differences between the views of some women and some men. The book also touches on the issue of the two distinct teaching styles still prevalent in the education system: the 'maternal' method, predominant in primary schools, and the more authoritarian style often used with older children. Parents Who Teach is a frank, fresh and thought-provoking study of an area of education that is relevant to a great many teachers.
