MY daughter comes home from school with a tale of woe almost every week. The issues her class-mates face would tax any adult. There is one girl who is in knots about her sexuality. Another who has tried to cut her own wrists because her home life is chaotic. And a boy with learning difficulties who once opted to lie down in the middle of the road to wait for a truck to run over him.
