Letters extra: Wetherspoons: why stop at bogs?

2nd April 2004 at 01:00

I was interested to read that a headteacher has sought the advice of the Wetherspoons pub chain on how to successfully maintain his school toilets, or the bogs as they are more likely to be known ( TES, 26.03.04 ).

This is a commendable example of a publicprivate partnership in action, but why stop there? Even if binge drinking amongst young people is a huge issue, surely Wetherspoons could be given a contract to run bars in school staff rooms?
