He studied English at University of Essex and then went on to train as a teacher at Sussex University. He worked as a Secondary school teacher in some of London’s most challenging schools. During this period he worked on his PhD ‘Black masculinities and schooling’ which became an iconic work and led to several key publications. He helped with the transformation of education in Hackney as part of the team that set up the Learning Trust and the celebrated Mossbourne School, the flagship of the Academy movement. Tony then went on to set up the charity ‘Generating Genius’. He works in both the UK and the Caribbean and helped to set up the Science, Maths and Information Technology Centre in the department of education at Jamaica’s University of the West Indies.
