Hummmm,   how many snow days have they had?    

 

BTW there are skills that someone going to the first grade should have to be able to keep up.....     but two days making a difference.....     wow.

 

My wife was a kindergarten teacher for over 20 years so I'm kind of familiar with the age group, and this article doesn't sound valid for the school or the parents.    Kindergarten is not just fun and games these days, and there are important things the kids need to have accomplished to be successful in the first grade......   but two days??????    really....

You know if you really think about it the school system can't force parents to maketheir children to go to school.
Seeing that this is just kindergarten I would have my kid stay home in protest and let him/her
be the kid they are because it will only be here once for them.
As a parent that times goes really quick..

I can't understand what the school system is actually thinking..
I bet if you ask those that are in control of this situation "did you have to think about college
when you were in kindergarten", I bet that person would blush in shame and say NO.

So then let them be kids and don't make them feel like they are going to do hard labor behind bars.

It depends on where you live....  I think I would like to have a whole lot more information concerning everything about the situation before getting in anyone's face over it.   We complain about the level of education we give our kids these days and when they want to focus more on teaching than fun then people get all upset about that.

 

I'm thinking there is more to the story here.

I can see with many issues there are 2 sides to the story. One of the issues is some of those from kindergarten are proven not to be emotionally or scholastically ready for the first grade.

I understand that schools are trying to give kids off to a good start. But even as the Bible says
there is a time for everything. In this case waiting until the last few days of school was a very bad decision. Which goes to show you those in those departments of administration were uneducated themselves.

If they were more smarter they would have had this better planned out. These kindergarten kids
worked hard all year.28.gif Now these kids are paying the price for the mistakes that the school staff is making. And you know what? This happens all the time. When you're a grown up at work the upper supervisers will make mistakes and try to make the employees make up for them. Hey give these kids a break and let the show go on.10.gif

I think since we make teachers go to college for four or five years to get certificates to teach and make them practice for a half year or so, it's pretty presumptuous for us to tell them how to their business.    I think it's perfectly fine to tell them what we want them taught, but how they do it should be left up to them....

Thats laughable since grades 1-12 dont prepare kids for much of anything. For instance in algebra they dont teach rise over run is how you build stairs. They just teach the application so you can pass a state apptitude test so the school can get paid. In other countries highschool graduates are ready for a technical job, here in the states a high school diploma gets you a job flipping patties. I am so glad i dont have kids.
