Dear Mr. Headteacher,
While I appreciate the many benefits of our school, I think there are still some problems. A big, the bigger, the biggest problem is school uniform.

The only differences between a teacher and a student are the age and the spelling. We all have the same rights so ,even though teachers have more...
