Leaving School at the age of 12 Summer Learning journey Week 3 Day 15

If I went to school 100 years ago and left at the age of 12 yrs. How would I feel?

I would feel unhappy but if I went to school and also part time work would be OK. As I feel 12 yrs of age is too young to work. People should start working at the age of 20 years old.  


  1. Hi again Alex,

    I would like you to explain further why you think people should start working at 20 years old. It seems like you have a really interesting idea, and I'd like to know more. Like I said about your WW1 post, this is about half an answer, to get full points you need to be going a bit bigger.

    Keep up the great ideas and thinking!


  2. Hi Alex,

    It is great to see that you are still blogging and I enjoy reading your posts. Perhaps to make this post a bit deeper you could explain why you think this way, but I do agree with your ideas here.

    I think 12 is too early to leave school because children learn knowledge, skills and earn qualifications at high school which will enable them to go to university or work in a wider range of areas. I also believe that 12 year olds should still have time to enjoy their childhood and to make sense of the world before having to worry about making money.

    I wonder if you share this opinion for similar reasons.
