Don't gamble with education's future


Sir, I read with interest the article regarding Middlesbrough College and Laing O'Rourke (News, December 8).

We were pleased to see publicity for this major development but we were disappointed that with so many wonderful facilities due to be completed in the project that you chose to imply that our students would spend their time gambling.

This does not help the cause of education in one of the more deprived parts of the country.
