Apropos of my last post I was fascinated to see the schools from which the adolescents and pre-adolescents were drawn for the study on audiobooks and dyslexia.

40 adolescents took part in the study, aged 11-16. Participants came from a variety of schools not seen in the UK.

  • technical school for surveyors
  • designer school
  • school for hotel staff
  • school of art
  • science school
  • school for electricians
  • business school.

I wonder how it is decided, at the tender age of 11, which child will be a surveyor and which a scientist.
