IN response to Jayne Dowle’s brilliant article (Yorkshire Post, September 24), I would like to offer the following advice about choosing schools.
Visit as many schools as possible, look around, listen to the pupils and teachers talking, and then choose a school which is multi-ethnic and where everybody – or nearly everybody – speaks standard English.
From: Rodney Gordon Cartwright, West Avenue, Filey.
I WOULD have thought being a journalist and a university tutor that Jayne Dowle would know better (Yorkshire Post, September 24). Kids are baby goats and not little boys and girls.
And on a similar theme, will all journalists and reporters please stop using “almost exactly”.
Surely, that is an impossibility.
What is a nurse trained to do?
From: Mrs Joy Walters, Kirkdale Court, Kirkbymoorside, York.
MY blood pressure has just gone up again. I presume Ruth Pickles is a nurse, or how else would she write such an appallingly unsympathetic letter (Yorkshire Post, September 24).
I thought nurses were trained to look after patients, and help them when necessary – not swan about looking down their noses because they have a degree. Some of us have a degree too.
I have just had the misfortune to be in hospital for a week, after a major operation. No help with anything. I was lucky to be given my pills.
One day they lost my patient notes, so I had no medication that day at all.
Thank you Jayne Dowle for an excellent article.
