I think there are negatives and positives on both sides of this, and a lot of it depends on the individual child. Some respond well to the school environment from a young age, others do not.
The option should be there, but I don't think it should be compulsory until a specific age and tbh I think that should be a good deal later than it is, maybe 6 instead of 5. Children learn a huge amount very naturally, but some children find the more rigid school environment very off putting.
