    This is good to hear.
    Thankyou! It's annoying how many people are the "Jeremy Kyle people' though, and quite sad really.

    The problem isn't with the children. It's with the parents who couldn't give a crap about them.
    Granted. But this would surely introduce a new generation into Britain.

    What's wrong with that? I could talk from the age of one and I was reading books aimed at much older children at 5, and I was also learning about current affairs. I could write, and I had a more advanced vocabularly than most at that age.

    The reason? My mother spent an awful lot of time teaching me to talk, read, write etc. If parents spend enough time with their children, it's perfectly reasonable to think they'll be able to do these things at 5.

    Omg, I hate public transport, it's full of them isn't it! At my old school there were a few, and they stole £100 worth of stuff out of my bag, and smashed it, for no reason! The audacity of these foul beings is astounding.

    It's a fictional book. If you take fiction as fact, then that's a different problem alltogether.
    for a 5 year old kid...that is a very thin almost invisible line. But yes, in the end it is a parents job to make them see that...5 years old is still too young. I mean some not so bright kids believe santa really exists until they are 10 or even 11. again...not every kids a genius.

    I do understand that not everyone has the same natural capabilities, but if the parents spent more time with their children, instead of sticking them in front of a television (as some do), they would learn to read and write much quicker than they do currently.

    Force feeding children culture will not work. So isty needs to evolve and should not be nostalgic in nature, there needs to be a clear cut choice and bettering oneself can only be done most efficiently through oneself. A child who does not enjoy this will grow an immense distaste for it and thus will rebel further.

    What is needed is a firm sense of discipline in schools but at the same time, a more nurturing type of education. The primary part of education is about teaching the child about the world, some will take to it, some will not. Some will find joy in it and others won't.

    I also find your stereotyping annoying. What is wrong with listening to a certain type of music? It's subjective, I might aswell berate you for your choice of favourite colour. I like a good bit of led Zeppelin turned up so loud my ear drums will probably explode any day, but you know what? That doesn't make me an uncultured person, if anything it makes you seem more uncultured because of your inherent lack of understanding.

    It's like video games, for some reason people are under the delusion video ages cause violence. But that isn't true, the factors surrounding why the child causes violence should be paid attention to, not the easiest target in the room.

    This!

    You cant force a child to do something they dont want to do, you have to make them want to do it. Making sure children have the right role models, not only in the media, but in reality as well is important

    No, you seem to be missing the point. Mathematics = school. This is OUTSIDE of school in an attempt to add more class, respect and knowledge to children.
    Well, I started learning Maths at the age of 3... and continued doing vast amounts of work outside of school until I hit senior. At the same time as reading. A lot.

    I completely agree...

    I Also have to stress this as well... people need to start articulating words and learning some proper grammar. Cos you can know all the history of britain and still say something like "Iv not done nuffin"...it just makes me cringe.

    Then support political initiatives that allow parents to do this. This just isn't possible for an awful lot of families.
