Education?

With employers complaining that they're having to provide training to young staff on basic literacy and numeracy - is our education system failing? :? We now have a debate on the age that "formal" education should begin - and some of the arguements about allowing the under 6s to develope a level of self confidence, creativity and imagination through "play" would seem to make sense. BUT, isn't it the centralised micro-management of education and the obsession with targets and league tables, rather than allowing many flowers to grow - thus allowing proof of best practise and thus results - that has proved a disaster, despite record amounts of money being thrown at it? :shock::?
