The educational scribes at newspapers have recently been busy sharing their thoughts on the rise in parental fines resulting in school attendance breaks to exploit cheaper term time foreign holidays. Parents have been signing petitions, child psychologists have been chucking their oar in and one person after another expounds his or her view on what “exceptional circumstances,” are.
My view is a simple one. I’m stunned that so many people seem to believe that one or two annual foreign holidays are a right not a privilege. Not the world I inhabit.
