SIR, - I write in response to John Parkinson's letter "Heads and tales" (Herts Advertiser, March 27). I read this in disbelief. Perhaps I am being touchy because I'm one of the parents whose daughter did not get into their first-choice secondary school - the school with the headmaster he mentions.
I personally would have been delighted if this headmaster knocked on my door as we have lived in Markyate for 16 years - Markyate is within this school's catchment area for those who might not be aware. I would also have been pleased if the headmaster had sat in the pew behind me at church for the past 12 years listening to my prayers because he could have told me where I was going wrong and that my prayers were not being heard.
So on to the appeal process with hopefully sufficient grounds. Will the outcome also be determined by the toss of a coin?
Park View Drive, Markyate.
