Letter: Unfair to cowboys

Click to follow
Sir: The vilification of cowboys ("Classroom Cowboys", letter, 17 April) has gone on for far too long and it is high time it came to an end - just imagine the uproar there would be had you referred to "classroom shepherds". The derogatory use of the job description "cowboy" must surely contravene one or other of the many pieces of recent legislation - equal opportunities or race relations? And another thing, should it not be "cowperson"?
