https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-46416421 Parents should be responsible for teaching toilet training and healthy lifestyles apparently I know in an ideal world, parents will raise their children, and teachers will educate them, but leaving it to parents means a lot of children just won't get a fair chance to learn the basics of life, so schools need to step in, but when you think about it, schools waste hours and hours of education time teaching things that should come from parents. If only there was some way of enforcing parents doing their duty. maybe we need an Ofpar, to inspect the quality of upbringings that children are getting in their own homes, and fining or charging parents that don't make the grade. In the meantime, the countries resources are wasted doing the parents job for them. we teach about behaviour, manners, relationships, friendships, road safety, social media etiquette, peer pressure, drugs and alcohol,self esteem, gang culture, woman's rights, equal opportunities, racism, thats just this half term.... Imagine if parents raised their children, and we only had to educate them academically. In some countries that is all schools do.
