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?
