Even I was educated, although this was the humble beginning in the primary school when I was about 7-8 years old. I am the one third from the right in the second row from the back, the one with the rather oversized bow in my hair. Mum had a thing for bows, although I never really had the long hair to go with it. I grew up in a working class area, the east end of London, so no Oxford or Cambridge airs.
And now today we are all expected to be qualified to teach the kids. We are living a life of isolation, stay at home, and so home education is necessary. I must say am I glad that I no longer have any children where I would be responsible for teaching them to read and write as well as mathematics. No, that would definitely not be my thing and I would even have to do it in a foreign language, German. I cannot imagine how my kids would speak German if they were being taught by someone like me with a cockney english mother tongue.
