YOUR SAY: Teachers should work 9-5 like the rest of us

COMMENT BY SUNSHINE COAST LETTER WRITER ANNABEL BUTT

I WOULD like to comment on the ongoing problems of child care.

It seems to me that all teachers need to come in line with other working professions who also provide a service, like nurses, doctors, plumbers etc.

If our teachers were working 9am-5pm, children would be home with families and not wandering the streets or put in after care or, sadly, home alone.

They should also have four weeks holiday, not 12, so parents don't have to stress out where their kids are going to be minded.

I don't care if we pay teachers the same as politicians, they deserve it.

Kindergarten/daycare should be part of every school so kids start at one year old.

Women should also be able to stay home with their child on some sort of income until the child reaches one.
