  1. The part of this item which annoyed me was this:

    The survey also suggested that parents were starting to realise the extent to which pre-school learning helps later in life.

    It found that 74% of adults believed watching educational programmes as a young child helped learning.

    Does this not carry the clear inplication that parents who don't think young children should watch TV think that pre-school learningis unimportant? I would argue quite the reverse - it's those parents who value learning who read books or play with their kiddies rather than putting them in front of an "educational" DVD.

    Sorry. Rant over.
