Comment of the Week

“Total click-bait and disappointing that you did so Mark! The article notes that TN implemented an “academic” model of preschool: an “academic framework that focuses on basic skills like knowing letters and numbers instead of on child development strategies such as exploring learning through interaction and lots of outdoor play… Even discussion during ‘story time’ is generally limited to questions with a single ‘right’ answer, instead of engaging children to think more deeply.” Your link is like saying, “Food simply doesn’t work” after researchers look at the the SAD.”

-You’re right. I will revise my comment to be more accurate: “Academic pre-K doesn’t work. Let the kids play.”
