Letter to the editor

Forgot to post this on the blog last semester.
Some background information- one member of the public had a letter published in The Age about students apparently not giving seats to elderly people on public transport so I sent one in which got published. This was on June 7 2016.

Standing up

As a  high school student, I  take the train to school each day.  On the rare occasions that I  occupy a seat, I always offer it to someone as soon as there are no longer seats available, as do most of my cohort.  Perhaps the problem lies  not with students but with “full fare paying adults” believing that they are as equally entitled to a seat as all other adults. Maybe we need larger signs or auditory aids to emphasise that some seats are to be vacated for those who need them more.
