Joe Allardyce has been a teacher for twenty years. State and private; secondary and primary; man and woman: Joe has been there. Except for the last one, obviously.
Some brave/reckless souls still pay Allardyce to do such stuff – all of which malarkey furnishes him with the kind of anecdotal evidence we’ve been taught to dismiss. Instead, Joe cites real examples of school practice, so that you get the details rarely seen. Even in the stories you’re permitted to know.
