Education, What's Trending

100 books you ought to have read before age 11

Books you ought to have read before age 11
Europe has ranked England 6th in their reading skills between the age of 9 and 10. And David Walliams, the English comedian and actor, said they should put full stop to children literacy in England.
He has teamed up Nicky Morgan, the Education Secretary, to make children start reading again. 
He said, “A good and interesting book can make children stick to it and with that no child will miss it.” So, how can we compare today’s education with the previous ones?
