School to fine par­ents who are late for pick­ing up kids...

Manchester Evening News - - LETTERS, COMMENTS AND EMAILS -

As a teacher, late par­ents are an an­noy­ance – but can be very dis­tress­ing for a young child. Per­haps reg­u­lar of­fend­ers should be fined, but not gen­uine cases. Alex Newman

Some par­ents have to work, some­times that means hav­ing to work later than nor­mal as jobs aren’t as flex­i­ble as they used to be. Then there is traf­fic to con­sider at rush hour, which is far worse than it has ever been. Vicky Tow­ers

As a par­ent at school meet­ings, teach­ers who run late at par­ent evenings is a hin­drance, so do you sug­gest we get paid too? Sumeet Ricky Man­dal

As a tu­tor my­self I think that this is ab­surd! No de­cent par­ent would de­lib­er­ately leave their child wait­ing. If there was any money go­ing spare, it might be bet­ter spent in a shel­tered area for them to safely wait. Por­tia Mont­gomery
