But I thought it was an offence to take your children out of school in term time?
This is because it was teachers and not parents who were responsible.for the interuption of their education.
Parents who take their children out of school to take advantage of reduced holiday prices during term time risk a fine for doing so. This mainly impacts on the working class parents struggling to make ends meet, it does not affect the four-wheel drive owning middle class teachers, the heads who live outside Tameside in the hills or the councilors on their expenses (and their wives). Look at the smug faces in the picture. Worried about their next Italian Holiday or dinner party. For all their alleged concern for the pupils of their school they chose to strike and deny their pupils an education....but let their parents deny them one day and its down chianti and Guardian and "hello council solicitor".
To any pupils reading this, next time you sit SATs tests remember, they are not GCSE's or GCE "A" levels. you don't get a certificate so don't bother studying, Or better still take the mickey! If asked what do you know about "Lesbian literature" say you've never heard of it. "I've heard of Brendan Behan, even Dominic Behan but Les Behan is new to me".
You get the point. THEY can ruin your education but your parents can't get cheap holidays...welcome to the adult world.
