The 2015 Finch Memoir Prize winnerAlan Sampson is a man bent on success. As a very strict high school principal he is renowned for transforming weak schools into centres of academic and sporting excellence. But the long hours take their toll on his home life. As his marriage ends and his family is torn apart, he is given a school with one of the worst reputations in the state. And to make matters worse, in this school is one of the most troublesome students he has ever come across … his own son, Greg.As Alan strives to find a way to tame his son’s behavioural problems at school and at home, he and Greg battle each other as well as the ingrained obstacles in the education system. Only when they both find the courage to step outside the rules do they find their way through to each other ... and realise that the best education in life can often be found outside the school system.
