Crisis in the Kindergarten

Here is a great article, from the New York Times, for anyone interested in Kindergarten and the homework issue. Why do we seem to be in such a hurry to educate our children, when all reports point to any advantages fading by fourth grade anyway. It appears that what they have missed out on, though, is play.......... back to that old chestnut again, I know. I won't be changing that record anytime soon........Kindergarten Cram.

  1. That's a great article. It's a shame that kids can't be kids any more. As a side note the toy industry has changed dramatically over the last 10 years or so. Kids over the age of eight aren't interested in toys any more - they generally just want sports equipment, clothes, mobile phones, video games etc. What a pity.
