Is this sentence correct? "word" says is wrong.
In recent years, much more attention than ever has been paid to children’s education.
Removing "than ever" will correct the sentence, but it might not convey your meaning. You now have an incomplete comparison. More than what or when? "More than ever" is acceptable, but you run into problems when you split it up.
In recent years, attention has been paid more than ever to education.
In recent years, more attention has been paid than ever before to education.
You don't have to delete children's as I did. Usually, when we talk about education we assume it is the education of children in general. When it is not, then we add a modifier to show what kind of education: adult education, early education, special education. But that's not a rule.
