    All too often young children through to teenagers do not have strong enough role models in their lives allowing shallow celebrities to fill the gap. There should be an encouragement in school for the young to see both parents ( where it is safe to do so) as even if Mum and Dad are seperated they should each play a crucial role in the short span of time that is childhood and the even shorter but most crucial time that is adalesence!

    As teachers I feel our priority should be to encourage good spelling....

    It's the schwa, isn't it, that causes so many problems. The one that is written phonetically like an upside-down e, and can be written in a word as an a, an e, an i, an o or a u. And a major source of poor spelling is not knowing which of the vowels to choose in any given word.
