The pompous Chief Inspector of schools Sir Michael Wilshaw has recommended that children in the UK start school at TWO years old.
At two many kids have not finished teething, many are not toilet trained and most still fall asleep at some point during the day. To suggest that babies should be enrolled in school is the most ridiculous thing I have heard in a long time, but from a government perspective it makes perfect sense.
He proposes that more schools should open for extended hours and that eventually all children should be attending school for ten hours a day for a minimum five days a week.
There are laws that prevent adults working more than 48 hours a week yet he wants children to be in school for at least 50 hours a week.
