I said I don't care that my husband can't spell, not that I don't care about spelling. Don't twist words.
Disadvantaged children are least likely to have access to a computer, so to assume that that is why they can't read, write and spell is wrong. The issues that disadvantaged children in our country are faced with is a little more complex than that.

My goodness. I said that they got a new gym. I didn't say that not all of them needed it.
I apologised to you if my wording wasn't correct. I also explained why I thought you meant literacy wasn't important. I understand you didn't mean that.
I have tried a number of times to respectfully explain myself but you keep at me. Can we please move on.
Lambjam thanks again for explaining the computer stuff so eloquently. I can see how important it is. I guess because it comes naturally to me I thought it wasn't a big deal to pick it up.

I still don't understand what you meant then when you said about every school getting a gym, unless it was just an exaggeration of the point you were trying to make about the BER.
Anyway, moving along.
