Lessons on Hillsborough are a step too far
2:15pm Tuesday 6th November 2012 in Letters
WHILE I have the deepest sympathy for all the victims of the Hillsborough disaster and understand their families need for truth and justice, I feel that agreeing to go on and teach lessons about the disaster is one step to far.
There are more important things to focus on in our schools like improving the reading and writing skills of all our young people and ensuring that they are equipped with the appropriate skills and knowledge to go on and prosper in their chosen career paths?
Surely a brief chat and discussion about what happened at Hillsborough would be sufficient time to focus on this event rather than lessons on the subject?
What grade will be attained? What relevance will it have in the work place or on a CV?
