I was read about education and I don't know about ewe's but my worst 3 yr at skool were trying to pass grade 1 English.
I wonder how make could pass a school exam now how much we have been taught and how much forgotten, is an education worth the time and money.
The article I read suggest kids would be better of doing time in a business not as child labour but to get an idea how a shops/car yard etc runs the mechanics of the whole thing as well as some schooling.
To day we are lucky you can look up Youtube and build a house or change spark plug true we didn't know PC would be around 40 yrs ago but any one can get an grounding on any subject or solve any problem even how to work out pumpkin PI.
Most kids have learnt more by the time they are teen than any time inn history via the net/ TV /Youtube/ Movies/ DVD etc.
My own experience has been I have learnt more since leaving school and wonder if it was worth while doing time.
How may were trained in one field and now doing some thing completely different now.
