Most children attend Kindergarten. Those that don't are not always behind there peers. Parents should continue to have the choice and the right to decide what is best for their child. Children in the Netherlands do not have any formal education until age 7 and they are better off for it. Making Kindergarten mandatory is not necessary and it also infringes on parents rights.
Yes, and we don't need to worry ourselves about possessive apostrophes (parents/parent's) nor about 'there' v. 'their'. And also, 'People that' v. 'People who' ... no big deal. Thanks, Mary.
@Mary : "Children in the Netherlands do not have any formal education until age 7 and they are better off for it. "
That's not what the Wikipedia article on "Education in the Netherlands" says. It says:
"Compulsory education (leerplicht) in the Netherlands starts at the age of five, although in practice, most schools accept children from the age of four. "
Don't miss out on the discussion!
