This new law is for the best. For those of you who feel that you cannot afford another year of daycare, that is your problem. It is not our teachers problems and certainly should not be the problem of your child's classmates. The truth of the matter is most educated parents are waiting until their children are 6 to start them in kindergarten. The law of the new date, is simply the minimum. The expectation level in our schools is very different from the way it once was. Our kindergarten children are on computers and reaching limits we never dreamed imaginable when we were younger. Our educators jobs is to teach our sociecty, not to babysit your children because you don't want to fund childcare. I urge you to visit a kindergarten classroom of a school with high scores. I believe you will find that the overachieving kindergarten children of those schools are older than they used to be years ago. Allowing your child to begin his or her school age years later is only a benefit and the way that I look at it - you get one more year with your child.
