Do you think schools are nice places?Watch this thread
I can see the necessity of putting many children in one place to achieve cost-effective education. Apart from the education aspect, do you think it is good for them though? Socially, emotionally etc. ?
The parts that are not so good is that children naturally learn at different rates, and although there are sets/groups for ability, some children's needs can be overlooked and often the middle ability children get less help/attention.
But yes, overall I think schools are good for children
