Pre-school testing may be going too far.

Published in The Times-Picayune (July 23, 2013)

Louisiana has decided that pre-school is "kindergarten prep"("Testing 3- and 4-year-olds is newest front in Louisiana school accountability," July 21): All pre-school classes will be monitored to make sure children learn their numbers and letters so that they are ready for the rigors of kindergarten. 

What's next, pre-school prep? Will we start monitoring parents to make sure their toddlers are ready for the rigors of pre-school?
