Quote:
‘Too much too soon’: playing at educatingA new UK education campaign is an attack on the substance of education in general.


The ‘Too much too soon’ campaign, launched by the Save Childhood Movement on the back of a letter to the Telegraph, has UK education policy firmly in its sights. In its own words: ‘Children in England are starting formal schooling too early and are subject to developmentally inappropriate pressures that are damaging to their long-term health and wellbeing.’


This topic never goes away.

It would be interesting to discuss this question in the staffroom to ascertain what colleagues think about the issues raised.
