OK, I'm only a parent, not an 'expert', but don't I get a say in my child's education. I'd like my child to do more reading and writing at pre-school, but I'm told she can't because she's not initiating this. OK, call me old-fashioned, but isn't it called pre-SCHOOL. Doesn't that mean children should learn things. Tangible things. In fact the most important things to learn at this age - reading, writing and arithmatic. I pay my taxes, but don't get a say in this! No wonder literacy standards are so low. Come to think of it, now wonder behaviour is so poor when four-year-olds are dictating what happens in the classroom.
