School pupils have too much time off
I WAS surprised to see notices in The Herald of places to go in the coming half term.
Half term? – they have only just returned to school after six weeks' summer break.
What is going on with education these days. It would seem that out of 12 months in a year the children today are on holiday for three months of these.
It's no wonder schools get bad inspection reports about school standards when for a quarter of the year they are closed.

As for the behaviour (here we go again) I feel the ban on the cane was a bad thing, what with attacks and threats to teachers, plus the unruly nature of some with no respect for teachers or where they are.
I will admit I did receive the cane on some occasions but I am none the worse off for it.
I now expect to see letters on how the cane is wrong and how some administrators might get off on applying this punishment. I await in trepidation.
