Day 9 – Sex, Drugs and Rock ‘n’ Roll

Do you want your children to be moved at age 11 from a possibly tiny Primary School to a massive Secondary School with much older and more street-wise children?

The Middle School system protects against this by providing a “buffer” zone between the nurturing environment of whole-class teaching and the harsher reality of preparing young adults for the world of work.

Middle Schools allow pupils to mature emotionally so that they are able to cope better with their move to a world where they will probably encounter sex and drugs for the first time.

Do you want your 11 year old to move straight into a world like this?
