Two Year Olds To Start School

 

Two Years Old?
You know sometimes I feel like a dinosaur.  Not the big purple dancing kind but the bones in the museum having left behind an oil field type.
It could be triggered by prepubescent fashion with excessive exposure of midriffs and upper thighs, or actions by our various Ministries in Government which more and more are resembling those wicked ones out of Harry Potter, or like today by idiots who do studies and then make recommendations that you just know those with power will embrace.
Now the interesting fact about studies is that they are often done to support a decision already made.  The ‘study’ is tailored to give a desired outcome.  That particular fact should not surprise anyone who breathes and understands words.
Last night’s broadcasts and today’s newspapers are giving a peek at what I figure is already a done deal.
Two year olds, our babies, should be in school and away from the control of parents and private care givers of choice.  Put our babies in the hands of the state.  It is assumed that all school staff are better equipped to raise our young
‘uns.
The next step I assume with my dinosaur spidey sense is that newborns will be wrenched from the delivery rooms and raised by the state.
Hmmm that is sounding more and more like the science fiction novels of the past were in fact more prophetic than imaginary.

  1. I have found the US is not much better. This year was the first year my kids entered public schools(home schooled up to this point), my youngest is 3 and is in Pre-school. But, for all my children that are in first grade or higher, they were labeled as needing special education. See here some of the school funding is based on how many children you have in a special education program. Example, If you have 8 kids in special ED that mean 10k more per child. It would seem the schools standard practice here is when a child enters school for the first time they are labeled as needing special ed. As a parent I know what my kids are capable of and fight the school tooth and nail! Low and behold turns out our son is an honor roll student, top of his class, special ed my ass. :)

  2. We have destroyed childhood with all the regimentation. Worse is trying to keep kids happy rather than teaching them values, how to accept the word “No”, and how to amuse themselves. Sigh, I am as you know A Cranky Old Lady these days.

I love to hear your thoughts on this!
