Leaving Childhood Out in the Rain!

Leaving Childhood Out in the Rain!

Leaving Childhood Out in the Rain!



Why do corporate CEOs, foundations, and policymakers want kindergartners to learn more advanced material at a faster rate? Why is this important to them? If children are made to grow up quickly, what happens to childhood?
Why are they against play and art for children in public schools? Why do they push children to read earlier and earlier?
They claim they want to ensure that children will get a great start, that a rigorous kindergarten will lead to a better future. But when does it turn into child abuse?
Pushing children to learn more difficult material in kindergarten will not be found in wealthy private schools. Those schools still have recess, include a well-rounded curriculum, and they make kindergarten an enjoyable experience.
Child development specialists, the experts, disagree with pushing advanced work in kindergarten.
