Readin', writin' ... and the other one.

Them high numbers need TWO hands to count.
A news story popped up this week about Beau Abela, a teenager whose father is suing the Education Department because his son cannot read or write properly.

I managed to catch an interview with his father, Peter, on Channel Seven a few days ago, and he was asked when he first brought his son's deficit to the attention of his school. He answered, "It was when he was in Year 3. He's in Year 8 now, so that's... that's... seven years ago!"

Maybe the courts could give the two of them a package deal...
