Synchronise half-term breaks
It frequently happens that where both parents are teachers working for different education authorities, they are unable to spend their half-term holidays together or with their families because the holiday dates do not coincide.
Would it not be too much to ask for the powers-that-be to arrange the same half-term holiday dates, especially in neighbouring authorities?
After all, we have a national curriculum organised so that all children learn the same things! Could we not have a nationally organised half-term?
