Regarding the kindergarten post, it’s getting crazier and crazier. My niece is in pre-school and they have homework there too.

I totally understand preparing them for elementary school but as children, we never had homework in either pre or kindergarten and I like to think as adults, we turned out just fine and were able to cope with elementary school.

A lot of parents are surprised when they come in for dial testing for kindergarten because they think of it as play time rather than educational instruction. There seems to be an increasing gap between the skills with which students enter school.
