Some think that children should start school as early as possible, while others believe that they should start school at the age of seven. Discuss both views and give your own opinion?
Education is very important for everyone. Some people think that children should begin their formal education at a very early age whereas others opine that they the age of seven years is the best for young people to commence educational studies. I agree with the former view for several reasons, which I will explain below.
It is irrefutable that children who begin to study at a very early age have more chances to succeed in the future. It is a well known fact that the younger an individual is; the easier it is for him to acquire new knowledge and information. Such children get a head start in learning which will definitely give them an advantage in their later school years. They gain more knowledge and experience which are priceless and valuable.
Another advantage with students beginning their school studies earlier involves their use of time. Unfortunately, many younger children waste a considerable amount of time at home Their activities are often counter-productive ‘time-fillers’ such as watching cartoons on TV and Video and other general time wasting activities at home. On the other hand, when students attend school, they are purposefully engaged in activities that stimulate their minds and encourage them to develop and improve.
Students who go to school at an earlier age give themselves the best possible chance to discover their natural talents. They may be good at science or mathematics or music and by starting school earlier, they are able to explore and build a stronger foundation upon these skills than if they had waited until age six or seven. They can build upon the successes enjoyed at an early age.
In conclusion, I pen down saying it is clearly a good idea for younger children to attend school at an earlier age.
