Rae Pica with Maureen Gerard, Ph.D., and Anne Henderson.
It’s a raging conflict: parents committed to get their children ahead of the educational curve want to see rigorous academic work even in preschool. Teachers trained in developmentally appropriate practice struggle to explain why what looks like play is actually the best way to prepare children at that age. What’s a parent/teacher to do? Our guests offer some guidance for resolving this conflict.
