I READ with interest that

Brompton-on-Swale primary school is asking parents to fund school computers

for children at a cost of £530 each (Echo, June 10) .

This is an utter disgrace. If a school can’t afford the equipment, it’s simple, don’t buy it.

The school should not expect parents to fund equipment it should provide.

It’s expensive being a parent and if parents have multiple children at the school the cost would be multiplied.

If the parents pay for the computer, do they own it? If not, why should they pay?
