What really should be happening in kindergarten classrooms


December 4, 2018

In a kindergarten classroom in Texas, 22 children spend their day participating in more than 10 different teacher-led activities in seven hours. They write in journals, do math, practice spelling and phonics, learn to read and more. They are just 5 years old.

Across the country, kindergartners are being told what to do and how to do it, every single step along the way, all day long. They play less, and study more than they did 20 years ago. This is what kindergarten has become, and it’s not a good thing.
