ONE publisher who will not "slap a copyright levy on materials used by primary schools for the national literacy hour" (TES, March 3) is Kingscourt. We condemn the move to charge primary schools pound;1.25 for each overhead projection transparency or 25p for every enlargement of text.

If a school has bought one of our teacher's guides, then it can freely copy such esources.

As one of the largest publishers of resources for the literacy hour we are appalled by the introduction of such a penalty on schools.

We would like to start a campaign on behalf of schools to prevent this literacy-hour tax.
