Because government approved curricular are rather inadequate and not completely suitable for this age, schools now implement different curricular. This makes a rubbish of the learning system as disparities set in.
Also, good textbooks with quality contents have become so expensive and scarce in classrooms!
The falling standards of education generally, is making it more and more difficult to find new teachers that are more knowledgeable than the ones we have presently and certainly, extremely intelligent professional teachers now have salary expectations that are way above most schools' budgets. As such, those who are supposed to be teachers are following other career paths.
Over one-fifth of children between the ages of 6 and 11 in Sub-Saharan Africa are out of school. These out-of-school children are most likely the ones that grow up to become the deadly terrorists and kidnappers that torment us all.
Plus, children who spend their EYFS at mushroom schools are most likely going to grow up to become those we like to dismiss as "bad graduates".
It's becoming increasingly impossible for most schools to set up basic science laboratories and other practical studios or workshops that required for a complete and meaningful learning process. The few available labs, studios and workshops are rather scanty with little or inadequate resources to carry out simple STEM experiments.
Also, excursions, inter-school academic and extra-curricular activities that are intrinsic parts of learning are no longer happening.
