"I've been in education for 20 years, and there's a disturbing trend afoot in kindergartens around the US"

This article was sent to me by another teacher, and - sadly - I can relate all to well with it. At the school district where I taught, nap time was removed, PE time and recess was cut, centers/stations were frowned up, and the entire school day was increased by 30 minutes to "allow for more education time". And this included Pre-Kindergarten. We teachers were constantly having to assess and test our children, leaving less and less time for actual learning and discovery.
