Inquest on a Failure: The Dual Entry Kindergarten Experiment in British Columbia.
Glegg, Alastair R.
International Journal of Educational Reform, v4 n1 p18-24 Jan 1995
During 1989-90, British Columbia implemented a dual-entry kindergarten program based on developmental readiness. The program failed because developmental readiness was difficult to measure, random entries were the rule, and a compromise solution proved unsatisfactory. Acting out of a principled desire to serve children could not squelch rational, convenience-oriented critics. (31 references) (MLH)
