All too much

20th April 2007 at 01:00
I refer to your article "Push young pupil power" (TES Cymru, April 6), in which it was said that a report by the Welsh schools inspectorate advised that pupils as young as five should have more say in running schools.

Shouldn't children be able to enjoy their childhood? Of course, they could have some say in the running of the body which made the recommendations - Estyn.
