Queensland's Deputy Opposition Leader Mark McArdle told parliament today that teachers were being advised to reconsider their pen choice because it may offend children.
Mr McArdle tabled a Queensland Health document proposing "strategies for addressing mental health wellbeing in any classroom".
It says: "Don't mark in a red pen (which can be seen as aggressive) - use a different colour."
