I AGREE with your editorial ("War reaches the classroom", TES, March 21) that teachers have a professional responsibility to remain impartial during the war with Iraq. They should be equally vigilant against Islamophobia and anti-Semitism, and they should not indulge their own anti-American or anti-Western prejudices with pupils as the left is prone to do.
