Do you think so?
Maybe I am but I feel this is going to be taking more rights away from parents!! Orweilian Society may have been more appropriate.
I'm not a parent myself but just thought I'd post this thread and see the re-action....
dont forget that children will be chipped too and be like robots from an early age!!
I think its good to see children with their parents during holidays.. maybe some parents dont want to see their children much and would rather work!!
Besides, there are less and less jobs out there and more people unemployed... what exactly will these children be doing when they finish school with higher grades?? (If they get higher grades)edit on 18-4-2013 by TruthxIsxInxThexMist because: (no reason given)
Another thing I've always said: "Home Schooling".

Even if home schooling were to become illegal everywhere, there is nothing stopping a parent teaching their own child in the time available.
Get your child used to you reading to them from babyhood and continue when they are older.
My older children are in their mid to late 20's and I still teach them and read to them whatever I learn and read.
They still sit, listen and then the best part criticise!! Teach continually. It is a parent's responsibility!
The Education Secretary called for longer school days and term times, warning that the current system is out of date and fit for the agricultural economy of the 19th century.
