Posted in: In the papers

A recent article in the Evening Standard, by the journalist Anne McElvoy, has defended mothers’ rights to stay at home to pass on their education to the next generation.  This could never be classified as a ‘complete waste’ regardless of what the Danish prime minister, Helle Thorning-Schmidt thinks.

What’s more, she also brings up David Cameron’s notion of the Big Society and points out that educated women at home are often ‘the ones on school governing bodies’ and filling out a range of other roles that add ‘to the mix of city life’, thereby benefitting not only their children’s lives, but the lives of the community in which they live.
