Sir: So, 11-year-olds are shunning homework for TV, eh? (report, 17 November). Well, good for them. What business have they got doing homework at their age? Parents complain that TV is boring - how much more so must homework be if kids shun it in favour of the box! Kids don't like homework and they do like TV: let them live their own lives for a change.

Yours faithfully,
