Without Walls Without Walls is Milton’s Toubkin’s unique memoir, which begins with an impoverished, but generally happy, early childhood in South Africa and ends with Milton’s retirement. Like most people, Milton faced many difficulties throughout his life, ranging from the divorce of his parents, his mother’s suicide attempt and the death of his daughter at the age of just nineteen. But Without Walls also records the happiest moments of the author’s life, including meeting and marrying his wife Marj, becoming a father to two children and becoming a grandfather.
The book also explores the huge impact that Milton had on the international educational system in London as a result of his founding Southbank International School with his colleagues. Milton describes the school’s modest beginnings, surviving with little money and no external support, before growing to become an outstanding educational institution with a unique programme. The story of this ‘school without walls’ forms a significant part of Milton’s life story.
Inspired by The School without Walls by John Bremer and Michael von Moschzisker and Peter Godwin’s A White Boy in Africa, Without Walls is a unique biography that will appeal to readers interested in education, as well as those that enjoy memoirs. It will also be enjoyed by former pupils and associates of Southbank International School.
