not sure how to link them without doubling up conversations

last QT a retired Maths secondary school teacher said that over her 37 years she had seen a steady decline in the grasp of basics from school kids coming from primary schools
they no longer knew their tables or could do fractions
this is a very big reason why secondary schools struggle if the kids that are delivered to them don't know the basics
my kids have gone through this stage and the primary school did not practise the times tables enough or have get a good enough grasp of fractions
I am not an educationalist/teacher just a despairing parent
I think primary schools are failing the kids who do not have a good grasp of the basics
