Annual Kindergarten Show Canceled to Allow Kids to Focus on College

Annual Kindergarten Show Canceled to Allow Kids to Focus on CollegeExpand

A beloved annual kindergarten show at a New York school was canceled this week by administrators in an apparent effort to prepare the five-year-olds for college, probably by teaching them that you can't trust anyone.

Administrators at the Harley Avenue Primary School in Elwood, New York, recently sent out a series of letters alerting parents that the annual song-and-dance show their children had been preparing for wasn't good enough for their looming college applications.

"The reason for eliminating the Kindergarten show is simple. We are responsible for preparing children for college and career with valuable lifelong skills," the letter says.

The administrators further explain that the five-year-olds would be better off learning to become "strong readers, writers, coworkers, and problem solvers," all of which, ironically, are skills required to put on a show.

Lol it's supposed to be fun, it's not that serious. A little talent show will not stop 5 yr olds from becoming doctors & engineers. BYE.

Here's the actual letter:

April 25, 2014

Dear Kindergarten Parents and Guardians,

We hope this letter serves to help you better understand how the demands of the 21st century are changing schools, and, more specifically, to clarify, misperceptions about the Kindergarten show. It is most important to keep in mind is [sic] that this issue is not unique to Elwood. Although the movement toward more rigorous learning standards has been in the national news for more than a decade, the changing face of education is beginning to feel unsettling for some people. What and how we teach is changing to meet the demands of a changing world.

The reason for eliminating the Kindergarten show is simple. We are responsible for preparing children for college and career with valuable lifelong skills and know that we can best do that by having them become strong readers, writers, coworkers and problem solvers. Please do not fault us for making professional decisions that we know will never be able to please everyone. But know that we are making these decisions with the interests of all children in mind.

 

Sincerely,

Ellen Best-Laimit

Angela Casano

Keri Colmone

Stefanie Gallagher

Martha DeMartini

I'm thinking they just didn't have the money...who cancels a kindergarten musical?Confused

I would be pissed if I couldn't see my baby put on a show they worked hard for.  I guess they're teaching them disappointment too?
