Interesting Fact - Reading and Writing

According to England's chief schools inspector, too many children leave primary school unable to read or write well enough.

(The head of Ofsted, Christine Gilbert, said one in five is not at the level expected for English at age 11. Maybe they should make it less of a chore, and a bit more fun. After all since the Factory Acts we've been trying to protect children from exploitation, but now we seem to want to work them to death at school!)
