Interesting article

Here's an article from the UK Times newspaper about education in England called "Why British children are pushed too hard", from one mother's point of view. Not having lived there for 14 years, it's hard to see how much the education system has changed.

But I do think that pushing children to read too early, to the detriment of everything else, is not good and this article here shows that children who read at 5 have no advantage over later readers by the time they reach 11. So, why miss out on all the fun stuff?
