'I wish my teacher knew...'

Teachers are more likely than any other profession to be confided in about a difficult or maybe abusive situation

Kyle Schwarz

A teacher in the US has made headlines after she tried to get to know her pupils better by asking them to complete the sentence 'I wish my teacher knew' in a writing task - and receiving some enlightening responses.

We asked a British teacher to try the same exercise and she too received information about her young pupils that ranged from humorous to heartbreaking.

Watch the moment she read a harrowing confession from one of the students, plus Piers and Susanna talks to Kyle Schwarz who originally came up with the idea and found that it not only helped her class to open up but learn about empathy.
