I have just read in the Guardian today that 1000's of primary schools in the UK are going to test their new entrants in September, and some parents are opposed. Why do parents try to interfere with schools? All they are doing here is transferring their nonsensical hangups onto their children. A happy 4 year-old might be anxious about their first day, but they could not care less about what they have to do as long as it is fun. If it is not complain then, or look for an alternative.
