BBC Solent interview on ‘Are our kids tough enough? Chinese School’ Episode 3 (19 August 2015)

This morning, I talked to Julian Clegg for a third time about the Chinese School experiment being run in a Hampshire school. In the final episode we found that the children who are taught by the Chinese teachers are the ones that came out on top. The exposure to longer school hours and potentially more discipline has given the ‘Chinese taught’ children the edge on their ‘UK taught’ counterparts. There are things we can, and probably should, learn from the Chinese including the understanding that education really is a privilege, not a right.
