An Interesting Comment on the British Education System July 19, 2013Posted by Garibaldy in British Politics.
Just saw that almost two fifths of recruits to the British army have reading and maths skills expected of an 11 year old, or worse. This calls to mind the shock the British establishment got when it discovered how unfit recruits were during the Boer War. Then there were reforms aimed at improving the health of the working classes. What chance a reform of the education system on this basis?
