Letter to the Echo

Dear Editor,

So, we learn from Ed Balls that primary school children are to be taught lessons on how to manage their finances, including how to save and budget. Am I the only one to spot the irony of this? We can only hope that the curriculum is left well alone by the Labour Government.

Can you imagine the following question: Your expenses are greater than your income and you are well into your overdraft facility; what do you do; a) try to reduce your expenses; b) spend a lot more?

It’s a pity such lessons were not in place at Gordon Brown and Alistair Darlings primary schools!
