lets get political
I guess blogs are a good place to sound off! so, I ill take advantage: Firat about the issue of formal education for very young children. The one word I havent heard mentioned is creativity! The one most usefull skill/talent in life in my experience is the ability to aproach problems creatively and come up with unique solutions. Play is essential to deceloping creativity and the school system as we have it is not great for developing that part of ourselves. Forcing formal schooling on very young children will help to kill that developing ability (that children naturally have) at the start of their developement.
