Meisels, Samuel J.
Momentum, v26 n2 p18-22 Apr-May 1995
Describes inadequacies of three policies intended to enhance child readiness for education: raising the age of school entry, retaining students in kindergarten, and extra-year programs. Argues that they are inconsistent with educational research and potentially harmful. Suggests the use of curriculum-based performance tests to help teachers and students reach their potential in classrooms. (10 citations) (MAB)
