      • One hopes so, but so often I see potential thwarted by the social expectations of families. I may have mentioned this before but a few (3/4) years ago an ex-pupil who was training to be a teacher came in and showed me a class photograph of his. He managed to reel off half a dozen out of the 50(approx) children who had already been in prison. He was 22.

        That is a depressing statistic Chris. As a teacher you of course are on the front line, I suppose you just have to keep plugging away at it and trust you are making a difference. We all remember the good teachers. The comic is autobiographical but saying ‘he’ made it easier for me to put it down on paper.
