What dots_thots is saying sounds very interesting but I just felt I had to point out that (as a Secondary Teacher) the content would be far, far above the capabilities of virtually all 15 year olds. It would also be a nigthmare to teach, since the vast majority would not see it as interesting or relevant to them.

Maybe this is something that parents should take on. After all, we're all concerned to make sure our children make their way in the world successfully. If parents could continue to be educated simply by means of the tv, which most of us watch, then we could pass the info on to our children. Maybe Martin could devise something for the tots on the lines of the Mr Men perhaps. Or an educational computer game.

Education starts at home...in fact, I go so far as to say that THE most important education should be happening at home. There is a very real danger here of instilling a mentality in generations of future parents that they don't really have to bother teaching their kids social responsibility. - SNIP -
Just my view. For me, the root cause of this country's ills is not a lack of education in school but a lack of education in the home. The government seems hell-bent on excusing parents their responsibility. If you are teaching kids these things for the first time in school...the horse has well and truly bolted.

My 8 year old has just started getting pocket money - performance related! He gets 10 spellings a week to learn. He gets £3 if all spellings are correct, 25p knocked off for each one he gets wrong. 1st lesson - you have to work for your money!
