for me it seems that children aren't getting as much of a childhood as they should be I think the problem is the economic crisis. People are having to work longer hours and both parents are having to work. The thing that is cheapest/ least problematic is tv/ computer and the kids like it. Also in older generations mums were expected to stay at home as they were discrimated against . As this decreases women are doing more things and work I think they want a family but they still want to work and I can understand why. They also want their kids to be top of the class and so are hiring tutors. If their child struggles with school it can really help. I had a couple of years and it seriously helped me but children who are bright are getting put under pressure to do better. I am not saying that this it everyone but the figures for private summer holiday tutors were too high.

I think the education system needs to be altered completely.
I'm beginning my exams today, and after all the revision and mocks I've done, I think it's all just a matter of how much you can remember, and there's nothing in subjects like humanities, science etc that really tests your own intellect.
