Woman's hour: Too young to learn?

Post by Susan Godsland » Fri May 27, 2005 12:28 pm

Geraldine pointed out this article on today's Woman's Hour:

Too young to learn 27 May 2005
When is the right age for classes?

Parents are gearing up to find out which primary school their child will go to. But recent research has revealed that 4 to 6 year-olds are turned off education by feeling pushed into formal classes.

So what is the right age to start formal lessons? Martha discusses this with Caroline Sharp from the National Foundation for Educational Research and Katie Ivens, Vice-Chair of the Campaign for Real Education.

Listen again and put your comments :wink:
