Next September my daughter Rose starts school. It’s going to give me many challenges. The school is thirteen miles away and I want to go to parents’ evenings and other open events. I’m going to have to phone up the school to ask about accessibility and go through the tedium of explaining everything, including my separation from her mum.
Whilst I don’t want to go in there all guns blazing, I need to let them know I won’t be fobbed off with superficial plastic excuses. Experience tells me that while I’m explaining on the phone the school secretary will be rolling her eyes. I’m just hoping it won’t end with a taste of rancour but I do have some clout when it comes to schools.
Nevertheless, if you’re interested in education and being a new parent it might be worth reading the latest blog. I hope it doesn’t seem too esoteric.
Best wishes, Steve
