My best education came after I got out of school. School taught me the fundamentals of reading, writing and using math. My real education came through life experience.

Not sure what age, I remember being young but around first or second grade I was reading efficiently enough to teach my younger cousins to read. By 5th grade I was reading adult science fiction and fantasy books including books like Old Man amd The Sea, Moby Dick, etc.

I will say it must depend on schools then, my nephews who I partially raised both used to bring home homework that involved analog clocks, metric, and a few other courses we didnt take as children.

I canít say how young I was when I first learned to read. But if picture books count I know that I was quite young. I came from a divorced family with 2 brothers and 3 sisters. I was the son in the middle and got less attention than either of my brothers. School really wasnít all that great for me as I would dream about other things. Also living in a small town and coming from a divorced family you were pretty well side stepped for others who had a parent that appeared more important. But I did turn it around somewhat with getting honor roll dismissal every afternoon during my jr and senior years. 1 year after high school I was given a test and they could not believe how much I learned after high school. So high school and reading wasnít a very good thing for me. This year I will either start making triple digits or be so close it will be like the same thing. My house is paid off and I am setting myself up to retire in 3 1/2 years. So in reality school and reading never came easy for me. But hands on stuff has dealt me a great hand. Cancer had set me back and having been winning that battle for the last 2 1/2 years I am now looking at it as a stumbling block. One that had been one heck of a fight for me but it is rapidly moving into the rear view mirror. Overall though school was not so great for me. But it did leave me with just enough tools to move along strongly after school and that is where it really counts. Adding and doing figures with a piece of paper and not a calculator which was not allowed in school back then.
