‘How many children should be wearing glasses in British schools?
There is research evidence that we should expect between 20-25 % of children in British schools to be wearing glasses if they are going to really succeed. The initial results from a survey I am undertaking are still too meagre. It will be interesting to see what changes in usage occur through the 11 years.
There is suspicion that there are many who should have but are not for a range of reasons.
I suspect that too many will not be able to really participate and will struggle, ,many are getting marginalised and as a result will underachieve.
We will find out.
