I thought this was in interesting article,
especially this paragraph:
Children in Finland only start main school at age seven. The idea is that before then they learn best when they're playing and by the time they finally get to school they are keen to start learning.in the context of our earlier discussion about early schooling=bad at math.
Sarah - are you in Finland?
