***Transforming Education Series: Outdoor Schools and Early Childhood***

Of all the truly stupid things we have done in education the worst has been the destruction of early childhood in the rush to making kindergarten more academic. It is not only stupid, it actively harms the development of children. This is a thoughtful and cogent article from YES! magazine on what we can do to change this situation. Look at your own community: does early childhood education and kindergarten help or damage children?
“New approaches to kindergarten offer us a glimpse of what childhood used to be, and still could be—the modern re-creation of the children’s garden. If we looked to these examples, we might be able to rescue childhood.”
