    The 1/4 of the time applies to ages 4-18 but as we both know significant and essential learning happens before age 4 – in that respect if the child starts school with a deficit it is the parents’ fault – years ago at a school meeting we the parents were told that if you compared the first 20 years of a child to one hour on the clock, the time children spent in school was 5 minutes, so… the teachers’ influence is very limited! Our problem is not with bad teachers and/or bad parents – it’s poverty and ignorance we must fight – it is therefore a societal issue which no politicians want to tackle, so let’s make the teachers responsible for failures – so much easier!!!!
