Do you want texts home from your kid's school?
(Those of you who have kids, that is.)
Texting is huge in the UK, but I didn't realize how big unitl I saw the result of a recent survey by government technology agency Becta which says that 68% of British parents would welcome texts or emails reporting on their children's progress.
I'm all for reducing the paper load: when I was at school we could have made a rainforest out of all the annoucnements I had to carry home. But whatever happened to parent-teacher conferences? Emails might be okay, but texting seems a little too informal to me, and of course, it's more expensive on the US side of the Atlantic ocean.
What do you think?
