'English kids 18 months behind China’s.' Apparently.

According to the latest educational scare-mongering piece in the Current Bun, English teenagers are 18 months behind Chinese pupils when it comes to reading, while our 15-year-olds also trail behind those in countries such as Korea, Finland and Japan.

I could sit here and debate this point for hours. But instead, I'll just say that if you're worried about your teenager's (or your own) abilities in English then you could do a lot worse than order a copy of Match Wits With the Kids today.
