Schools need space they don’t have
“I’m so angry and disappointed. Our kids are going to suffer for years.” These are the words of one parent on hearing the news that the Government had given up on its plan to get all children back to primary school in England before the end of the school term. Some may be relieved that they do not have to make the decision themselves. Others are perhaps resigned to the fact that they are in the strange and sometimes stressful world of home schooling.
But for families around the country, classrooms staying empty is not just about missing out on sports day or the summer fair.
