A Lesson for Us All tells of the intrigue and pressures that surrounded the introduction of the National Curriculum, the most sweeping educational reform since 1944, and examines the roles of three education secretaries: Kenneth Baker, John MacGregor... and Kenneth Clarke. Duncan Graham was the man charged with introducing the new-style lessons into the 24,000 state schools in England and Wales from 1988 to 1991 when he resigned as Chairman and Chief Executive of the National Curriculum Council after deep divisions over principles with Kenneth Clarke, the Education Secretary.

              The Day Bo Found His Bark is a delightful children's story of a dog named Bo who overcame bullying!Far to the north of ancient earth, was a Kingdom of Dogs, where lived a dog named Bo. Bo was very unpopular because he was different from all the other dogs. He did not have a beaut...iful fur coat. He did not have parents, brothers, sisters, or cousins. Bo didn't have even one friend. But, worse than all of that, Bo had lost his bark. In the Kingdom of Dogs, this was the most horrible disgrace! Bo's inability to bark sparked a great amount of teasing from the other dogs. One day, after another round of teasing, Bo decided to run away. He thought that maybe if he could travel far enough from his village, he would find his bark. Then he could return home and rub their noses in it--so to speak. Bo felt that when he found his bark, it would be bigger and better than everyone else's. With these thoughts, Bo set out on the long, lonely search for his bark. Situe tres loin au nord de la terre ancienne, il existait un Royaume de Chiens. La vivaitun chien qui se nommait Bo. Bo etait tres different et pour cela il etait tres impopulaire aupres des autres chiens.Sa fourrure n'etait pas belle. Il n'avait pas de parents, de freres, de soeurs, ni de cousins.Bo n'avait pas un seul ami. Malheureusement, ceci n'etait pas le pire de tous, car Bo avait aussi perdu sa voix. Au Royaume des Chiens, ceci etait desastreux! Les autres chiens se moquaient de lui a cause de son incapacite d'aboyer. Un jour, apres avoir ete soumis a un autre cycle de moqueries, Bo decida de s'enfuir. Il pensait que s'il pouvait s'eloigner tres loin de son village, il pourrait retrouver sa voix. Ensuite, il pourrait retourner chez lui et se prouver aux autres chiens. Bo pensait que quand il retrouverait sa voix, ses aboiements seraient les plus forts et les meilleurs de tous.Avec ceci en tete, Bo commenca sa longue quete solitaire pour sa voix.
