Product Description

This is the story of Bill Renwick. It is a New Zealand story, of a small boy who spent his early years in poverty. Justice and equality were the compelling forces in his professional life, from the time he entered teaching as a young man, till his retirement as director-general of education. Early years in poverty in rural Northland during the great Depression shaped Bill's conviction that every child should have access to the best its country could provide: "Justice and equality were the compelling forces in his professional life," says Vincent O'Sullivan.When Bill died he left behind this unfinished memoir- a vivid story that starts in rugged circumstances, but thanks to positive experiences at school we see his horizons widen. After succeeding as a teacher himself, Bill's talents are noticed and his rapid rise to the top in the education system begins. Some of Bill's professional writings and other pieces are included to round out the picture of an inspiring life.
