Ask a kindergartner what his or her favorite part of the day is and they probably wont answer, Prepping for the SATs.
Well, one school on Long Island, New York is canceling its annual kindergarten play because it believes five and six year olds should focus on college and getting a job.
The principal at Avenue Primary School in Elmwood wrote in a letter to parents: 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.

....”coworkers and problem solvers.
It’s well known in psychology that people learn best when what needs learning is done in the context of a game. The school, if that really was the reason for cancelling recess, is inhibiting the kids from learning.
I wonder what was the name of this annual two-day play...
What a contemptuously arrogant and completely obvious bald-faced refusal to explain the real reason for this ridiculous decision.
But that's the Left - they stick it in your face, and demand you not only accept it, but in doing so, declare your own stupidity and obedience to their lies.
This is classic tyranny.
Haven’t watched it all, but 7:08 or so shows a menorah.
The US flag is prominently featured, too.
Wonder if this was another CAIR op.
The world needs ditch diggers.
And this, boys and girls are why kids start acting out and shooting up schools. They have all that pent up energy and hormones with no release valve.
More idiocy from “educators”...many of whom are in the moonbat-idiot class.
