The concept of kindergarten is so important to kids that it has been the subject of numerous scientific research articles.
It’s an essential part of the curriculum for every school in America and is a key component for students to understand basic physics concepts, math, and the fundamentals of learning.
The kindergarten requirement is also a key part of how the United States prepares for the 2020 Olympics.
This year, students will be required to complete the first four years of high school in a school that is at least 50% made up of kindergarteners.
And according to a new report by the nonprofit group The Collaborative for Educational Excellence, a consortium of school districts, there is a clear need for more students in kindergarten to get the fundamentals across.
According to the report, only 12% of kindergartners have completed their first year in kindergarten and about 35% are still learning the basic science and math.
And while the report notes that “the majority of kindergarten students do not receive the same opportunities for math and science enrichment as their high school counterparts,” there is still an enormous amount of need for that to continue to improve.
“The preschool system needs to be fully engaged with the new standards for kindergarten,” said Emily Geddes, president of The Collaboration for Educational Enterprises.
“That includes increasing kindergarten teachers’ involvement in learning by encouraging them to lead and lead in class.”
As part of its mission to ensure all students are prepared for kindergarten and beyond, The Collaborator for Educational Enterprise is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization that advocates for the education of all students in America.
The organization’s mission is to build the foundations for a more just and equal society through advocacy and education.
Gedders said she was proud to partner with The Collaborators for Educational Enforcement to provide funding to local, state, and federal educational agencies and community groups to create more opportunities for preschoolers.
The Collaborative has already begun to implement the kindergarten plan in several states, including California, where it has funded about $30,000 in additional kindergarten teacher training.
Gaddes said she hopes that additional states will follow suit in coming years.
“We are looking at a number of different types of funding, including grants, and we’re hoping that these can be a part of this next phase in the transition to a fully-funded preschool,” she said.
