Preface

It will be the biggest send off any teacher has ever had. No teacher is as loved.
After 45 years as a dedicated teacher, Edward is looking forward to the imminent celebration to mark his retirement.
But his home is under siege. A mob of angry students have gathered. A brick has been thrown through the window, he and his wife haven’t left the house for six days, and now his estranged daughter has arrived with her own questions.
Why would they attack the most popular teacher in the school?
The Cane explores power, control, identity and gender as well as considering the major failure of the echo-chamber of liberalism.
