College for Kids?
by Henry Nelson

Pre-school education is changing. Once, elementary school was the place to learn 1-2-3 and A-B-C. But today, highly motivated parents have begun teaching these basics to their children before they start school. Kindergarten has now become a mini-college, where geography, history, and even mathematics are taught. Small children are even given homework assignments.

Professor David Shift, who is the Director of Early Childhood Education at the University of Highville, says, “We must simply accept the fact that children today know more than children did years ago.”

Eleanor Idle, of the New School Institute, doesn’t agree. “Children need to be children. They learn as they play. They don’t need formal education this early. It just isn’t normal. Soon they’ll be given entrance exams for kindergarten. Very young children shouldn’t spend their time worrying about grades and diplomas!”

Dr. Idle believes that if there is already so much competition in kindergarten, there is no limit to how much there will be in high school. “We don’t need to make it any harder on students than it already is,” she says. “After all, there were still many college graduates when playing was all children did in kindergarten.”

Many people who agree with Idle say that early childhood programs should offer subjects that children enjoy and do well in naturally, like art, music, science, and gym. After all, learning should be child’s play.

Kindergarten has now become a mini-college, where geography, history, and even mathematics are taught.
幼稚園は今や小さな大学となり、そこでは、地理、歴史、数学さえも教えられてます。

Small children are even given homework assignments.
小さな子供たちが宿題までも与えられます。

Professor David Shift, who is the Director of Early Childhood Education at the University of Highville, says, “We must simply accept the fact that children today know more than children did years ago.”

“We must simply accept the fact that children today know more than children did years ago.”
「今の子供たちは、昔の子供より多くのことを知っているという事実を、私たちはそのまま受け入れなければなりません。」

Children need to be children
子供は、子供でいる必要があります。

They learn as they play.
彼らは遊びながら学びます

It just isn’t normal.
これはまず普通ではありません。

Soon they’ll be given entrance exams for kindergarten.
そのうち、幼稚園に入学試験も科せられるでしょう。

Very young children shouldn’t spend their time worrying about grades and diplomas!”
とても幼い子供たちは、成績と卒業証書を心配しながら(幼稚園での)時間を過ごすべきではありません!」

Dr. Idle believes that if there is already so much competition in kindergarten, there is no limit to how much there will be in high school.
それぐらいの競争

Dr. Idle believes that if there is already so much competition in kindergarten, there is no limit to how much there will be in high school.
それぐらいの競争が幼稚園で既にあるならば、その子供たちが高校に入る頃の戦争には限度がないだろうと、アイドル博士は考えます。

“We don’t need to make it any harder on students than it already is,”
「今でも十分学生にとっては大変なのに、それ以上にする必要はありません。」

“After all, there were still many college graduates when playing was all children did in kindergarten.”
「幼稚園でしたことは遊びだけだったという大学卒業生が、やはり依然として多くはいました。」

Many people who agree with Idle say that early childhood programs should offer subjects that children enjoy and do well in naturally, like art, music, science, and gym.
アイドルに同意する人の多くは、幼児期プログラムは、子供が楽しめて自然に上手にできるもの、例えば美術、音楽、科学や体育といった科目を提供すべきだと言います。

After all, learning should be child’s play.
結局のところ、学びは(子供の遊びのように)簡単なものであるべきなのです。

Juan: My son is in second now at the local . He is very excited because he has just begun to study French and geography.
Maryse: Just now? My daughter began studying those subjects in kindergarten.
Juan: Don’t you think that is too early to start studying ? My son did and art at that age, and he did very well, too. I don’t think he missed out on anything in kindergarten. He likes school, and his are fine.
Maryse: I suppose we’ll have to wait a few years. Then we’ll see how our kids do when they get into .
