He draws parallels between the behaviour of pupils and the behaviour of teachers. For example, he examines the use of laughter from the point of view of the teacher. Laughter can be used to control a situation, sometimes to subvert it and often to do both. He recognises that teachers can be drawn between two models of teacher: the bureaucrat and the person.
