So a New York school decided to cancel a kindergarten show in order to further prepare them for college and career.

Please do not fault us for making professional decisions that we know will never be able to please everyone. But know that we are making these decisions with the interests of all children in mind.

Kindergarten. To prepare for college and career.

Crunching Numbers

One more time: Kindergarten.

Utter bullshit.

But isn't it awesome that these five futurist know what career will be out there to prepare for 12 or 16 or 20 years in advance?

Though God forbid they go into something that might benefit by, say, being comfortable performing in front of others.

Or maybe allowing them to enjoy the rush of performing something they've practiced for who knows how long.

Or just letting them sing a song for mom & dad.

But that isn't something we can standardize test.

Anyway, Ellen Best-Laimit, Angela Casano, Keri Colmone, Stefanie Gallagher, & Martha DeMartini, piss off. You're perfect exemplars of what is wrong with education today...
