An influential and classic work – and Angela Devlin’s first book Criminal Classes comprises recollections by offenders of their schooldays together with a commentary by the author. It was praised from the outset and has been reprinted several times in response to demand. A wealth of information for criminologists, sociologists and educationalists is contained in this book: New Kids on the Block Offenders affected by multiple and fragmented schooling. Odd One Out Special needs that went unnoticed. No Place Like Home The Effects of Social Disadvantage. Teachers – Good, Bad and Boring How teachers and head teachers can influence and intervene. Bullies Causes and effects of bullying at school. Wagging and Sagging Bunking and Skiving Truanting and offending. Mates Peer group influences. Spare the Rod Punishment and exclusion from school. Gold Stars The importance of motivation, success, praise and reward. Picking Up the Pieces What can be done at school to limit future offending? Some practical suggestions. Reviews ‘This book is of considerable public importance on a subject which calls for attention. I believe that in prison life the status of education needs to be raised for the high percentage of offenders who have failed at school and come from broken families, and are soon to be discharged into the community’: Sir Stephen Tumim, former HM Chief Inspector of Prisons ‘If you are in any doubt about the links between poor education, crime and recidivism, read it’: Marcel Berlins, The Guardian
