One teacher's terrifying insight into 5-year-olds failed by their parents
More than 40% of children fail to meet key development indicators such as being able to dress and undress independently. They also show inability to maintain concentration or understand the difference between right and wrong.

England is failing its young children ‘on a grand scale’ when it comes to achieving basic levels of social and emotional development, experts have warned. Sir Michael Marmot, director of the University College London Institute of Health Equity, said social inequality is leaving two in every five children unable to perform simple life skills by the age of five.

He said markers of early child development were closely linked with deprivation – with the UK ranking ‘badly’ compared with other nations. These indicators include being able to dress and undress independently.

They also measure children’s ability to maintain concentration, the level of interest shown in classroom activities. Other areas children might be scored on include understanding the difference between right and wrong, ability to use language, recognising familiar words and developing an interest in books.

Here, one teacher - the Mail knows her identity but has given her a nom de plume - describes a day in the life of an affluent primary school. What she says will shock you…

I don't know about dressing and undressing but I CAN tell you the reason their attention spans are so short is because of television programming. These young children are being programmed to attention spurts of 8-15 minute tv shows/cartoons. The shorter the programs become, the shorter the attention spans that are programmed in the children that watch them.

This is easily corrected, however. TURN OFF THE TV! We threw our television out 3 years ago and our children showed a marked improvement in the length of their attention spans within a few days to a week...to the degree that other parents noticed and asked what our secret was. They were often disappointed in our answer stating that they could never give up their "babysitter" a/k/a television. And therein lies the problem!

Then the state school change-agents bend the poor child's mind with lies and harmful adult material.

If you think this is scary now wait until these affluent parents use their influence to get their turnips into high position jobs.

This is so shocking. It seems unbelievable.

Having been a classroom aide, and, a den mother, I have had experience with a bit of adhd, the occasional tired child, that 'one' each semester who may be poorly dressed, and, those few who have started school with no prior learning skills. Even though it's been at least a decade since those days, it's hard for me to imagine how out-of-hand such problems have become. What I read in that article is chilling.
