Oh si, oh si, ooooh si!!!!!
Sieeeeempre lo he dicho. Desde que la Secretaría de "Educación" Pública decidió que la escolarización inicial tenía que ser obligatoria, le pusieron en su mauser a los chavitos pre-escolares, a los kinders, a algunos padres (otros sólo quieren nanas, por lo que les ha de haber caido super la noticia), y sobre todo a la "educación" misma.
Explico..
Hace algunos años, la escolarización pre-escolar era abierta, libre, los niños iban al kinder con gusto, podían jugar, experimentar libremente... Y ASÍ ES COMO SE APRENDE. Pero,... aaaaah!!!!... salió un gran genio político diciendo que ahora esto tendría que ser estandarizado y ZAZ! ahora la SEP, las escuelas y los mismos maestros caen en el concepto tan conocido de escolarización forzosa, niños sentados en fila, todos haciendo lo mismo al mismo tiempo y "estandarizando también los juegos".
Estamos hablando de niños menores de 6 años, que pasarán los siguientes 15 años de su vida (si sólo llegan a preparatoria) sentados en fila, escuchando a un maestro que juzga si están bien o no, si saben o no según los momentos marcados por nuestra "benemérita" SEP.
La diferencia la he vivido incluso con mis hijas. La mayor tuvo aun (fue el último año que se permitía) entrar a primero de primaria a los 6 años. Naaaaadie se metía conmigo ni cuestionaba si ya sabía leer o no, si estaba siendo escolarizada o no, sin embargo con la pequeña, a quien Kinder 2 le hubiera correspondido una escolarización obligatoria, ha sido toda una aventura, porque desde que tenía 3 o 4 años ya podía escuchar la presión de maestros y familiares cuestionar el porqué no estaba siendo escolarizada.
Tristemente, no puedo escolarizarla ahora, porque NO TIENE CERTIFIDADO DE PREESCOLAR, y si ella ahora decide que le gusta la escuela, no tiene la opción de entrar en estos momentos.... HELLLOOOOOO!!!!!!!!
Pero que no se me malentienda.... puedo estar de acuerdo en el concepto de que los niños vayan a al kinder, siempre y cuando se entienda esta escolarización muy fuera del concepto y paradigma que ahora tenemos de lo que una escuela es y "debe ser". Filas, niños, "socialización" de horas con el concepto de: "Te sientas, te callas y copias lo que veas en el pizarrón o lo que yo te dicte"...
Pero bueno, todo esto se los cuento, para compartir el siguiente artículo publicado por la BBC education. Ya ud. decide si está de acuerdo o no...

Call to start school at age six

The ATL found support for a later school starting age
Children should not be compelled to start school before they are six, many primary school staff seem to think.


A questionnaire completed by 740 members of the Association of Teachers and Lecturers found three quarters believed they should be at least five.

Under current guidelines, most UK children start school in the September after their fourth birthday.

The ATL questionnaire also found staff thought an emphasis on tests, literacy and numeracy was undermining childhood.

The questionnaire was sent to 10,000 members of the union and was completed by over 640 teachers and just under 100 teaching assistants in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.


Summer-born children often lack the maturity to cope with school

Claire Jagger, a primary teacher in Cornwall, wrote in her response to the questionnaire: "I have taught in Finland, Lapland and Russia and have seen first hand the way in which their seven-year-olds start school ready to learn.

"They are emotionally ready, socially able, physically content and mature enough to deal with the curriculum in school, bringing good solid life experience and a thirst for learning."

A primary school teacher from Kent said: "Summer-born children, especially those born in August, often lack the maturity to cope with school.

"They would be better off staying at pre-school for longer, but there is also a lot of parental pressure for the children to start school so they can go to work.

"I often feel like a child-minder and not a teacher."

Time to play

The questionnaire also found 42% of the respondents thought pupils did not have enough time for playing with their friends.

Over half of respondents said children were not getting enough time in school for non-core subjects such as music and singing, art and crafts and drama.

Nor were they getting enough time being taught on their own or in self-directed learning.

Sheffield primary teacher Heidi Hindmarch said: "I seem to do more assessment than teaching.


FROM THE TODAY PROGRAMME

"The children are turned off at a very young age because the curriculum is all about attaining a level rather than learning for the thrill of finding out."

The association's general secretary, Mary Bousted, said: "We have a choice: we can either go on overloading the curriculum and testing children at every opportunity, or we can create an environment where children enjoy learning and discovering.

"Primary school should give children the building blocks to continue learning, so they leave with the basic skills they need to be able to make friends, learn on their own and with others, and a desire to do so."

A spokeswoman for the Department for Children, Schools and Families in England said a recent study of 35,000 children had found that beginning reception class in the September of the academic year in which they turned five could have positive benefits on attainment.

"Sir Jim Rose's interim report suggested parents be given the choice that their children start part time.

"He has consulted widely on the optimum time to start primary school with early years' experts and teachers as part of his curriculum review and will report back on his findings shortly."
