    Every now and again you find a handbook that does exactly what it
    says on the tin, writes Robert Glover.

    Here is a comprehensive, crystal-clear explanation of the
    jargonistic world of education. Plainly written and easy to
    navigate, it provides an excellent overview on current thinking and
    custom and practice on every subject from “foundation stage” to
    Connexions, covering every key stage in between.

    It provides a wealth of information and analysis on exactly the
    kind of issues that social workers come across with baffling
    regularity and need to get a grip on – belonging regulations,
    special educational needs codes of practice, and so on.

    Providing an exceptional “what’s what” on every educational issue
    you can imagine, it’s a must for social workers, youth workers,
    parents, students – and probably for teachers, too.

    Robert Glover is senior practitioner social worker,
    Calderdale Looked After Children Education Service.
