Some people say that children should go to school as young as possible, while others believe that children should go to school of at least 7 years old. Discuss both views and give your own opinion.
While for most of us, the memory of primary school starts at 7 years old as we finished our kindergarten and set out to receive education rather than just babysitting, it doesn’t seem so natural for some people who are eager to push forward the time as much as children could kick off their life as pupils.
Reasons from these people could be complicated but all seem to me poorly grounded in arguments. For example, they proclaim that kids of smaller age possess greater curiosity than those 1 or 2 years older and hence, enjoy some possible advantages in nurturing passion for knowledge. But I wonder how could it be practicable to tap the so-called curiosity into the expected seeking spirit of wisdom without a torment of sitting 40 minutes each class forced before children are mature in body and mind.
However, it isn’t also very rational for some other people to stick to the number of 7 as the pupil admission age without enough consideration of kid’s mental readiness for school, which could be earlier or later in specific cases.
In my opinion, either ripping children off from parenting too early or forcing to send them all to school in their 7 would be too lacked of concern, for I believe there is no good to press kids on seat for schooling as long as they are not mentally ready. And like what we are supposed to do with other aspects of child education, to individualize the age of school admission requires professional consultancy, but before we leave the timing to its experts and arrange the best children need, it’s first our job to break the shackle of mind of so-called school age and have it no rush, no lateness.
For school children, their teachers have more influence on their intelligence and social development than their parents. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
