7.45* Thought for the Day
How much control do you have over your child's education? Parents used to believe education was best left to the teachers. Now. more and more parents want to be in partnership with the schools. Who should decide which reading method the school uses, and whether to teach tables or new maths? Can you transfer your child from one school to another without moving house? If you think your child is not being taught well, can you do anything about it? And will the education your child is receiving prepare him for life?
Dr Eric Midwinter of the National Consumer Council and Maureen O'Connor. Editor of Education Guardian are in the studio to answer your questions and hear your experiences of being a ' consumer in education.
Sue MacGregor is in the Chair Produced by the Woman's Hour Unit

During the last 50 years, doctors, psychologists and others, have attempted to harness the beneficial effects of talking, in the practice of psychotherapy.

Ian Kennedy. Lecturer in Law at King's College. London, in the second of two programmes, examines the moral implications of society's response to defective children. Recently it has become possible to detect ante-nalally the presence of a foetus with spina bifida-a defect that may lead to paralysis and mental retardation. Should we. therefore. institute a nationwide screening programme for foetuses with spina bifida, or are the financial costs and the costs in terms of unintended damage to otherwise healthy foetuses unacceptable? Producer DAVID PATERSON
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
