NYT Magazine: Puberty Before Age 10: A New ‘Normal’?

NYT Magazine: Puberty Before Age 10: A New ‘Normal’? | Students with dyslexia & ADHD in independent and public schools | Scoop.it
What science tells us about the incredible shrinking childhood.

Now most researchers seem to agree on one thing: Breast budding in girls is starting earlier. The debate has shifted to what this means. Puberty, in girls, involves three events: the growth of breasts, the growth of pubic hair and a first period. Typically the changes unfold in that order, and the proc­ess takes about two years. But the data show a confounding pattern. While studies have shown that the average age of breast budding has fallen significantly since the 1970s, the average age of first period, or menarche, has remained fairly constant, dropping to only 12.5 from 12.8 years. Why would puberty be starting earlier yet ending more or less at the same time?

Why David Brooks Almost Gets School Reform Right - Huffington Post | Students with dyslexia & ADHD in independent and public schools | Scoop.it
"Since people learn from people they love," he writes in the same column, "education is fundamentally about the relationship between a teacher and student. By insisting on constant informal contact and by preserving that contact year after year, The New American Academy has the potential to create richer, mentorlike or even familylike relationships for students who are not rich in those things."

Amen, Mr. Brooks.
