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.
