The Independent Culture
Sir: Marian McCain has a quarter of the school year to take her children on "educational" holidays and all the recreations she feels are much better than the "grim" national curriculum. Teachers, mostly, work hard to impart the national curriculum to our offspring. They do this by finely balanced timetabling and regular pupil attendance. To deliberately wreck such planning seems selfish.
