Education+: Your Views - Hypocrisy of means testing

I find it possible only in the double-speak world of New Labour that Margaret Hodge should be able to state, entirely correctly, that fewer than 10 per cent of all students come from a working-class background, yet then say that it is "bold and radical" to introduce "proper means testing" and abolish grants totally and introduce tuition fees.

Letter: Rich kids

Kate Sampson's report on working mums and their children did much to assuage my, and no doubt other middle-class mums', guilt ("For God's sake, mum, get a job", Real Life, 16 February). I flattered myself that my intellect and energy were better used outside the home. Did our children suffer or do worse in their exams? I do not and will never know.

Who's right about child care?

`Mothers are key figures for education talk, for talking about homework, for discussing what has gone on in the day' Professor Margaret O'Brien; `There isn't a scrap of evidence that putting children in day care while mothers go to work is bad for health or education' Dr Ian Roberts Institute of Child Health

Cinema: It's Shakespeare, Al, but not as we know it

For An actor's vanity project, Al Pacino's documentary-cum-home- movie Looking for Richard (12) is surprisingly watchable - an ego trip which can be enjoyed by the viewer as well as the starry participants. Pacino's wheeze is simple: he and a bunch of his famous and not-so-amous chums don their metaphorical pith helmets and set out to "explore" Shakespeare in general, and Richard III in particular, through a set of rehearsals and performances - a process which gives them all the chance to put on tights and act out some choice plums from the text, as well as to gas on remorselessly about motivation and subtext, have a nice little jaunt to Stratford and London, and generally muck about. The result: matter and impertinency mixed.
