Here we go, we now have proof! Right after my rant yesterday and today morning on feral children who are mollycoddled.
Primary schools that push their pupils academically reduce antisocial behaviour among children, a government-funded study suggests. Researchers who followed the progress of about 3,000 children to the age of 10 say schools that set challenging targets for pupils improve behaviour and may influence other aspects of a school's culture.
The authors say that this leads to fewer pupils getting into trouble, particularly those who never had education, playgroup experience or care outside the home before they went to school.
What more proof do these well meaning idiots want? Truly, the road to a crappy hell of an education system is paved with good intentions!
All this to be taken with a grain of piquant salt!!!
