No wonder the youth of today have no handwriting skills, and write everything in txt language, etc. I would prefer my kids to be tought to use the latest technology to help them in the future, not left behind because of the “ooh, when I was a lad we had to make do with.” attitude.

Nor do I understand why sponger children get one free when everyone else who has children at these schools are tapped up for money on a nearly weekly basis. Obviously we can see where that money has been going now, buying the staff ipads.
