seems little point in a class activity which half of them can't do
If we had better funded education we'd be able to provide a service that meant those who didn't want to make Father's Day cards for any reason would be off doing something else with another teacher or assistant.
By not making the cards we're now discriminating against the kids who have Fathers or whose religious or other beliefs or social status allow them to celebrate Father's Day. So it's a vicious circle.
Or dads like mine, who died; making me part of a single-parent family of the type which is rarely mentioned.
That is sad and I am sorry to hear it. However, there was a girl in our class at Primary whose Dad died and every year she still made him a card which she took along to his grave with her Mum.
Is there any end to this politically correct nonsense?
