Let preschoolers be preschoolers

from The Baltimore Sun

In the discussions about high quality pre-K and Common Core standards, it seems to me that we are missing something important. We are so focused on preparing young children for the future and using them to fix societal problems that we are not paying attention to young children themselves, their experiences, their feelings, their sense of themselves. In many ways, we are giving them the message that they are not good enough. We teach them that living in the present moment is not good enough. We push down curriculum and treat young children like school-aged children although their brain structure is not as fully developed. more
