stepney words.

chris searle started teaching at sir John cass secondary school in stepney, east london. in 1970. he had just qualified. but certain ideas about education were already settling in his head.

these views were not shared by the schoolwhich, although quite new, was run very traditionally. some of the governors and teachers were ex-army or had a church background: gowns were worn and canes were used to punish trouble-makers if necessary.

so he made them read it and write it, believing that in this way, his pupils would make sense of their lives and their surroundings. the short verses they wrote were sad and often bitter,with the east end shown as a palce of no hope.

his classroom was noisy and lots of the girls had crushes on him. he saw pupils after school too, as he ran a half price film club and lived in stepney, unlike most of his fellow teachers. who fled each night to the suburbs.

the school governors, who thought the poems were too "gloomy", had ordered searle not to go ahead with the collection. butby march, stepney words was out, paid for by searle and parents. extracts were even published in the national sun newspaper. searle's "encmies" (his own word) now made their move. one lunchtime in late may. the head called searle in and fired him, instructing him not to come in after the end of the month.

when asked recently why they had all taken such a strong line on the sacking, sheexplained: "it just didn't seem fair that a teacher everyone liked was being thrown out." she remembers walkin into the offices of a local newspaper after school to tell them what was going on. they called the national press, which transformed the protest into a major event.

there was also a sympathy walk-out by the cleaning ladies, who made their feelings known by refusing to wipe the "don't sacksearle" graffiti off the school wall. other school joined in and the next day there was a march to trafalgar square, in the centre of london.

in may 1973, the government education secretary, margaret thatcher, ruled taht searle should be reinstated at the school. however, ignored by other staff and denied a class of his own. he decided to leave sir john cass for good in july 1974
