Se a nossa ministra diz que na Inglaterrra não há retenções e que os pais não perceberiam o que é (não) passar, como se explica que andem preocupados com o desempenho dos alunos, desde a mais tenra idade?

Early intervention: Key to giving disadvantaged children the opportunities they deserve

(…)

Early intervention can provide children with the social and emotional support needed to help fulfil their potential and break the cycles of underachievement which blight some of our poorest communities. The commission will look at and recommend the best models for early intervention and advise on how these could be extended to all parts of the country. It will also consider how such schemes could be supported through innovative funding models, including through non-Government streams.
