So children in the north don’t achieve as much in education as their counterparts in the south.
I am not sure that’s true, I can only speak for my son’s education, he’s had a brilliant learning journey, thanks to school and his parents.
I spend hours every week helping with his education, most nights are taken up with extra work.
I know when he started school he had a grasp of reading and writing as I made sure he was read to and learned the alphabet.
Maybe this report is true but there are parents out there who expect school to do it all and don’t take any interest in any extra work at home and that could be in any city in this country.
