The pressure to test kids 24/7/K12 has forced schools to eliminate some of the frills of education. Frills like…
- Naps in preschool programs.
- Recess in elementary schools.
- Stuff that’s not on the test – physical education and social studies, civics, geography, languages and the arts.
Reading and math – hardly what I’d call a well rounded education.
Update: (3/21) The LA Times editorializes on the issue of preschool naps.
