    Yeah it should be, although a conclusion may have been the difference of a mark or two.

    What did you guys put for this question?
    I did:

    COMPULSORY SCHOOLING:
    - negative effect as it contributed to the age patriarchy (Gittens) by increasing dependency on adults by restricting work time. Linked it in negatively with control of children's time. Then countered it with school allowing adults time to work to pay for their child to have a better childhood.

    AGE RESTRICTIONS:
    - positive as they protect children. Supported it by saying it is an almost universal value in society to keep children safe.


    Not sure if they're right, but that's what I had. What did you put?

    I asked my teacher before, she said all information for aqa sociology will be from the latest textbook, which talks about one child policy. So it's fine to mention it

    I talked about compulsory education and how it had broken down the barrier of the adult and child world (postman) as children can now read and calculate the things that parents tried to hide eg money, sexual magazines etc

    ?? just because its in the textbook doesnt mean it links to the question

    it said today, the one-child policy has been abolished so it doesn't really affect children anymore

    So, good 20 marker wasn't it?

    What did you put for the ten marker? My first point was liberalization of divorce laws mean children are now more likely to live in SPF and RF. My second point was about increased child protection.

    I wrote about compulsary schooling up to 18 increasing the barrier between child and adult making children economically dependent.

    For the second bit i wrote about equal pay and sex discriminatiom laws mean children are now more equal amongst eachother and girls have higher ambitions and can now take part in science and maths. Is that this an okay point to make as it is a policy and i wrote about it affecting children.
