5. This retired kdg. teacher agrees
The skill levels of kids entering the kindergarten classrooms is so varied. Some children come into kindergarten reading on their own. Others come needing to learn basic commands: come, sit, stay. It's a very challenging - and rewarding - class to teach. I loved it, but left totally exhausted every day. Kindergarten has become first grade in recent years. That's good because kids learn best at a young age. On the other hand, it's bad because some children come to school without the skills needed for success. We need pre-school education for everyone.
