Crisis in the Kindergarten: Why Children Need to Play in School

Crisis in the Kindergarten: Why Children Need to Play in School

Regular price $12.50

As academics and standardized testing are crowding early childhood education, social and technological trends are also undermining creative play. 

The withering of imagination in childhood is a looming catastrophe with consequences as profound as global climate change, but much less widely recognized. The very attributes we most want to nurture in our children--creativity, initiative, collaboration, problem-solving, courage--are best developed through imaginative play. We must change course now to restore child-initiated play and learning to our schools and communities.
