A Sharply Focused Teacher

“Had a long talk with Mr Dork. I explained I was a one- parent child with an unemployed bad- tempered father. Mr Dork said that he wouldn’t care if I was the offspring of a black, lesbian, one- legged mother and an Arab, leprous, humped- backed dwarf father so long as my essays were lucid, intelligent and unpretentious.”

Sue Townsend The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole aged 13 and 3/4s 1982
