I LOVE this idea, even if it does cost a fortune and “there is no evidence it teaches kids to read better” etc. Read the full story HERE.
Awesome. Now that I have a kid, I really think a lot about the school system and how I feel about it.
I went to school from 730 AM-530 PM all my life. I learned both hebrew and english studies. I was an A+ student. But I cant help but feel that I dont want that for my daughter. Why should she come home exhausted and then sit down for hours of homework? Why should she sit through hours of miserable classes taught by a lot of people who really hate kids, with just 1 or 2 GREAT teachers tossed in through out the years?
I dont really know what the alternatives are, but I know that I toured one preschool and the director told us that the kids only get 25 minutes of play time per day. All the kids were sitting at tables like little soldiers. I HATED it. 2 years old is really really young to be sitting at a table for 3+ hours per day.
It kind of depresses me that soon I will be handing her off to the system.
