Parents must work to provide for their children's 'free' education
The headlines in your paper (Irish Independent, September 5) warn us that 'Working Parents are damaging child health due to absence'.
Yet the debate on radio and TV never questioned why both parents need to work to make ends meet. It is obvious that parents work to give the families that they have brought into this world a good home and a good education, including secondary school, and, if possible, university.
This is increasingly difficult in this great little country, where even primary education is not free.
