Anyone who works with children or who has children should read this book. Thought-provoking and extremely insightful. Buy a copy for yourself and another to share… What an eye-opener!!
Too many leaders say they’re working hard to end child poverty while more and more children are in families that society is failing. Leaders are not prioritising child poverty, are not working hard enough to end it and are failing the UK’s children. No child should be living in poverty.

A classic account of how the comment "we have a problem" is welcomed but the question "why have we not done anything about this problem?" triggers a very different response.

What a thoroughly engrossing book and so enlightening. Its findings and recommendations should shame the 'powers that be' into action. If only Sir Tim Brighouse was still the Chief Education Officer in Birmingham, then we would see some action. Eddie O'Hara should be congratulated for bravely highlighting the the city's failings. His book deserves to be a huge success.
