Educating the East End: school as soap opera | Education | TV and radio | spiked

Meet Joe. He was a boy who always just wanted to help people, and so grew up to be a government special adviser. But he soon discovered that politics doesn’t really help people at all; it’s made up of self-serving types who are only interested in their own careers, he says. While mulling this over, Joe chanced to watch Channel 4’s 2011 series Educating Essex. Overnight, Joe decided to become a teacher. When the same TV company made a follow-up, Educating the East End, it just so happened to pick Joe’s school. So, now Joe has become a minor TV star, too. As the poster boy for the programme, the rookie English teacher, whose full name is Joe Bispham, is doing his bit to encourage more people to become teachers.
