Parents must all oppose books bill

Sir -- Congratulations to Eilis O'Hanlon on her excellent article on the cost of schoolbooks.

Last May I wrote to the Education Minister to complain. His department quickly informed me that this matter had absolutely nothing to do with them -- the selection of books rests entirely with principals and teachers of individual schools.
