"16 underachieving, extremely challenging, yet bright and likeable school children embark on a whole new way of learning in The Unteachables. These 'unteachable' kids are what the state education system refer to as 'disaffected' - either completely disengaged from what's going on in the classroom (preferring to entertain themselves and other students with mobile phones, ipods and idle chatter) or so abusive and disruptive in school that permanent exclusion was inevitable. The Unteachables is a fast paced, upbeat, yet thought provoking exploration and illustration of what is really happening in our schools today. But are these kids Unteachable or simply Untaught?"--Talkback Thames website
