Accountability Comes to Preschool: Can We Make It Work for Young Children?
Stipek, Deborah
Phi Delta Kappan, v87 n10 p740-744, 747 Jun 2006
Early childhood educators are justifiably concerned that demands for academic standards in preschool will result in developmentally inappropriate instruction that focuses on a narrow set of isolated skills. But Ms. Stipek believes that teaching preschoolers basic skills can give them a good foundation for their school careers, and she shows that it is possible to do this in ways that are both effective and enjoyable. (Contains 6 endnotes.)
