All over the world, children's academic performance varies at best. There seems to be an imbalance in terms of the output of students in one country, as opposed to another. Why is this? Is it that not enough resources are being poured into the education system by "the powers that be"? Is it that the teachers aren't qualified enough? Is it that our students aren't being "coached enough" at home by parents? My question for you is this: do you think that the age at which you start sending your child to school has any effect on whether he/she will perform well in their future school years? Or do you think that the "age factor" is a myth? Tell me what you think!
