Children Start School Not Knowing Their Own Name | August 1st, 2011

"The British government’s poverty tzar Frank Field made an almost unbelievable statement on bbc Radio 4 on June 23. More children need to arrive on their first day of school with the skills they need to learn, he said. “We’re talking about children knowing their own name … knowing that crayons are for drawing and not stabbing the person next to you, a range of very simple skills like that, which is lacking in a number of individuals."

Are children really arriving at school not knowing their own name?

  1. Soon the government will probably be naming our children.


I appreciate feedback!
