How to be Digitally Literate in an Era of Fake News | Education and technology | Scoop.it

How the New Preschool Is Crushing Kids

How the New Preschool Is Crushing Kids | Education and technology | Scoop.it

Today’s young children are working more, but they’re learning less.

Joseph Vancell's insight:

Though written in  the context of American schooling, this article is so relevant to the local situation. I know, because my daughter is a 4-year old and is attending preschool. Too much time is 'spent with workbooks and worksheets, and less time devoted to music and art'.
