Parental dis­cre­tion

Townsville Bulletin - - Text The Editor -

Re: lack of home read­ers be­ing read with par­ents. If only the par­ents re­alised the huge gap they are mak­ing be­tween their child’s read­ing and oth­ers in the class. I reg­u­larly see gaps of up to 20 lev­els, which makes the teach­ers job in­cred­i­bly dif­fi­cult as they ac­com­mo­date the gifted and ones fall­ing be­hind. Par­ents lift your game for your kids sake!! Mum, Deer­a­gun Kath­leen, HP. Does the term ‘‘ age­ing pop­u­la­tion’’ mean any­thing to you? We ‘‘ breed­ers’’ pay tax too, and our kids will pay higher taxes again to sup­port grumpy old se­niors like you. A par­ents room in Flin­ders St is a sim­ple busi­ness de­ci­sion. Shops want shop­pers, par­ents shop. The coun­cil would spend 10 times as much on a cor­po­rate func­tion, of course there should be a de­cent par­ents room in our CBD. Kath­leen, Bush­land Beach
