Children in our county being short changed in their education.

Post by Guest on Mon Mar 14, 2011 3:05 pm

School children in West Lothian are to receive only 8 days schooling during the whole month of April. Disgraceful!!. Teachers holidays, in service days for teachers, election day, royal wedding day, etc. When does the kids education come first?. Needless to say we are lumbered with a Nu Liebour MP.

I have zero faith in my daughter's education at school. I am resigned to knowing that I will have to teach her most stuff.

Sadly, many of my friends with children are saying the same thing Sad

They are basically buying the books, learning the subjects themselves and teaching their children at home. This is at all levels of education including GCSE's.

I merely am replicating what my parents did for me, I can honestly say that apart from the sixth form, I learnt more from them about my planet than I did from school.

I was allowed to stay up as a treat to watch things like ballet and classical music as they thought it cultural, but never for some trashy movie. I'm not saying I always appreciated it at the time but I value it now.

I enjoy teaching my child about everything I can and we even did some experiments today that demonstrated potential and kinetic energy which I found fun myself.

I read somewhere a quote which goes like, give me a child until 7 and I will give you the finished adult, or something like that. In many ways I believe this.
