A Lot to Learn provides a valuable historical analysis of women's experiences of education, from the perspective of both a student and an academic. It raises important and relevant educational concerns--particularly in terms of social justice--that are crucial to educators internationally. It presents critical comments on issues such as parent participation and activism in schooling that many would find useful. It also provides an insightful discussion of the intersections of gender, sexuality and social class in education, woven throughout an interesting historical discussion of the lives of several generations of women in the one family.
