Missing the Point?

Aren’t they missing the point here? Kindergarten is not longer age appropriate. It’s more like what 1st and 2nd grade used to be. So of course children have difficulty. Kindergarten used to be full of play, singing songs, a child’s “garden.” The Nordic and Scandinavian countries once (and some still do) allowed young children to play until the age of 7 when they attended “school.” Of course that makes sense! Through play, they learned what young children need to learn socially, emotionally, cognitively and physically. Why is this so hard to understand? Just watch children for awhile. You’ll see how vital play is to their lives.

Stanford researchers show we’re sending many children to school way too early
