This book privileges the experience and knowledge of classroom teachers over marketization and the constant assessment of their students' performance.
In 'Teachers Undefeated' Jon Berry found that teachers had not fallen for a reduced and meagre view of what children should be offered by schools.
Now he writes about schools that have made a collective decision to abide by the principles of teaching and learning, confident that results will follow.
Teachers, as well as parents and school governors, can take heart from this book.
It shows that we can still teach with creativity, energy and innovation, and that resistance to a regime of teaching to the test is both possible and rewarding.
