A Review and Evaluation of School Readiness on the Basis of the Bioplasmic Force Theory.
Ogletree, Earl J.
This paper examines the issue of early schooling in a review of research on school readiness and child development and offers an explanation for the findings based on the theory of bioplasmic forces. A wide range of studies are cited which are interpreted as evidence that most children are not ready for academic schoolwork until they are 7 or 8 years old. Then the bioplasmic model is explicated. According to this model, bioplasmic forces are in continuous motion maintaining all the elements in the body to keep the organism growing and healthy. The same forces are transmuted into the power to control thinking, and each person has only a certain amount of these energy forces available. The argument against early schooling based on this model contends that inappropriate curriculum, activities, and assignments cause children's energy forces to be displaced and atrophied prematurely, thus causing damage to the children's development.
