    NPR’s ATC today had an interesting piece on how kindergarten has become almost completely “academic.” It’s all so confusing. Some research seems to show that many five-year-olds are ready for a full day of the 3Rs. Other research indicates that kids that age need more play time. The US as a whole is heading the academic route; the UK, the opposite direction. It really reinforces how much better homeschooling is for little ones. We can make our “programs” fit our kids instead of the other way around.
