Test Prep For 4-year Olds?

    In the February issue of New York Magazine the cover article "The Junior Meritocracy" talks about testing 4-year olds for admission to New York City schools.  Four-year olds?  Yup.
     The idea of selling a book to prep preschoolers to take these tests is capitalism at its worst.  $499.00 will get you a copy of the Aristotle Circle workbook.
    "Tips For the Admission Test . . . to Kindergarten," and "Connecting Anxious Parents and Educators, at $450 an Hour" recent NYTimes articles tell a sad tale for our children. . . and their parents.
     How did we get to this point?

Paramedic coursework writing services are very difficult to complete and many students are always searching for Paramedic Science Writing Services to help them complete their paramedic assignment writing services and paramedic research paper writing services.
