Synopsis

"Don't get obsessed about behaviour. It's the learning experience that counts." With these words of advice from his university tutor, David, a former lawyer, begins his new life as a secondary school history teacher. Hoping that calmness and persistence will prevail, he struggles to make himself heard as the teenagers take control. Pushed to the brink of failure but helped by one of his students, he narrowly survives the training course and secures his first full-time job at an "outstanding" school. However, when it comes to behaviour, things can only get worse and David is forced into exactly the kind of violent confrontation he had tried so hard to avoid. While humour is never far away, Those Who Can't exposes only too clearly what really goes on in our classrooms.
