Nato education

First published in Letters

WE are now being told that schools in the area and at distances up to 30 miles from the Nato venue may be closing or operating shorter days.

Does this mean that parents can sue the councils and police for disrupting their kids education?

If not why not? Those same parents will be fined if they disrupt their own kids education by taking them on holiday during term time.

Sauce for the goose... otherwise I see a high degree of both unfairness to parents and kids, and hypocrisy by those authorities in he way they treat parents and kids.

Mr Morgan, Varteg

Sorry but i fail to see the misinformed bit.
The Vale have said their schools will be affected and that is surely the distance away.
I agree with the letter as written.

Some Vale schools as with some Newport schools may be affected but they are not 30 miles from the NATO venue.
As usual J.M. has put his own twist on something.

Some are nearly 30 miles away. It does not take much to get teachers to decide to close a school in Wales. These NATO meetings have been held all around the world and Wales is the only location where they felt they needed to close the schools

I take the info dished out in media reports.

Maybe you should do some reading as I do before submitting criticism.

Silly boy, Bobby, go to the bottom of the class! It won't be the Teachers decision to close the Schools.

'These NATO meetings have been held all around the world and Wales is the only location where they felt they needed to close the schools'.

By the nature of the Summit which causes major disruption wherever it is held I would imagine that most previous NATO Summits have had similar precautions put in place.
No point in asking you to provide a link to back up this nonsense is there Bob? Thought not!

There has ben no incidents of schools having to close at any previous NATO meetings. Wales is unique with this and this has been confirmed

No schools were closed in Chicago during the last summit although the question of doing so does seem to have been considered.

But it may be that the closure of the M4 through Newport will cause special problems. We all know that when this happens the whole area, not just the motorway, becomes grid-locked. The risk of having some teachers absent when their pupils are at school unsupervised may be too much to take.

And I know they say that the M4 will not be closed but effectively it will be because the police are going to stop the traffic while VIPs are travelling in convoy so that no-one gets near them. A rolling road block or something like that they call it.
