The scale of time that we deal with in discussion of evolution is in fact a serious difficulty for people who are unacquainted with the subject. Many people can't deal with 1 or 2 thousand years of history, never mind 1 or 2 million years!

I'm interested to see if an earlier introduction of this material to school children will help them wrap their minds around the vast expanse of time that we deal with here.
