Schools have been criticised for making us look after our own children for even longer under the guise of ‘Teacher Training days.’
Nobody wants to look after their own child for longer than they have too, and putting training day, and inset day on the holiday list is just winding everyone up.
Homeworking dad, Peter Thape has had to abandon his regular daytime five knuckle shuffle for the last six weeks, and he points out that the school holidays have gone on long enough.
‘They’ve been off for six weeks, don’t sneak another couple of days in at the end,’ said Thape.
‘To be honest, I don’t want to know it’s a training day – just call it school holiday,’ added Thape.
