So what is

It?s a philosophy that recognises the importance of students having complete control of their learning. In Never Mind the Inspectors Tait Coles justifies the need for punk learning. His manifesto challenges the orthodoxy and complacency of teaching and allows students to be central to a ritical educational culture where they learn how to become individuals and social agents rather than merely disengaged spectators who have their 'part to play' in the neoliberal ideology of modern schooling.

This book is for everyone with an interest in learning, teaching and doing things differently.


Tait Coles is a teacher, Vice Principal in a Bradford Academy and an educational speaker. He is a classroom maverick and a respected radical of modern teaching. Previously, Tait has been Assistant Head Teacher at a comprehensive school in Leeds and was Head of Science in one of the many challenging schools in Bradford. Tait is the creator of Punk Learning; a manifesto that challenges the orthodoxy and complacency of teaching and allows students to be central to a critical educational culture where they learn how to become individuals and social agents rather than merely disengaged spectators who have their 'part to play' in the Neoliberal ideology of modern schooling.
