HOMEWORK

THERE IS A BOY…

AN ORDINARY BOY…

HE’S JUST LIKE EVERYONE WE KNOW…

BUT WHEN HE’S LEFT ALONE…

HE DOESN’T OPEN UP HIS BOOKS…

FROM WHICH THE PAGES HAVE ALL FLOWN…

THE WORDS REMAIN A MYSTERY...

IN THE FOUR WALLS OF HIS MIND…

A DOWNWARD SPIRAL…

THAT’S DRAGGING HIM BEHIND…

He’s a statistic…
He’s 1 in 3 children who doesn’t own a book…
 
He’s 1 of 1.6 million children in poor housing in Britain …

A place of insecurity…
A place that isn’t home…
Homeless or badly housed children are nearly twice as likely as other children to leave school without GCSEs

And that really puts the

WORK

Into

HOMEWORK

…And then he’s expected to grow up…

BOY

Becomes 

MAN

But the world just gets bigger…

Filled with closing doors…
