Kindergarten Evolves In The Era Of Common Core
In Southwest Florida classrooms — and many others across the country — kindergarten in the era of Common Core has evolved into something that feels more like first grade.
Educators are feeling the pressure to push even their youngest students academically so children don’t fall behind.
Kindergarten is the foundation for learning the new standards that will follow students for the rest of their education. The push is part of an effort to strengthen the U.S. education system in the face of growing global competition and to make sure students are prepared for careers when they graduate.
