“Robert carried on teaching the children, not just the curriculum, but things from his culture too, manners, team work, different ways of looking at and solving problems. As Robert lived out of the town he wasn't aware of something that was bubbling away under the surface that would affect his job and his faith in education.”

Story of a young Traveller teacher who is devoted, hard working and well loved by the children and who speaks up in a discriminative situation. What shall a Traveller teacher do if the seemingly tolerant school management tries to silence him?

written and performed by Richard R. O’Neill
