Letters pray - for more pithy penmanship

4th March 2011 at 00:00

It has become increasingly obvious, after reading many TES letters, that many are far too long and rambling, to say the least.

Some are wholly political in the extreme, and are full of sound and fury without a main conclusion.

In contemporary society, letters should be an expression of personal relevance to the given situation. A factual aspect of the England and Wales education systems is that "what goes around comes around", as the history of education has proved time and time again.
