It's not just me!
Well look at this! No, not the author pursued by cows across a Swiss meadow. I mean this rare case of anecdotal evidence being backed up by research. It seems that teachers really don't read children's books. This article is from The Bookseller in 2008. I doubt whether much has changed since then. I've always been puzzled by the media representation of teachers as radicals and revolutionaries. It's certainly not the case in Primary schools. A lot of the teachers I know go to bed at 9.30. I don't think they have the energy to revolt.
