Redshirt or not to Redshirt?
NAEYC’s position statement on inappropriate practices in Kindergarten includes the following:
“Delaying children’s entry into school and/or segregating them into extra-year classes actually labels children as failures at the outset of their school experience.”
For this assignment you will need to:
- (1) take a position on the statement (agree/disagree), and
- (2) support your position with information from the readings and videos in this module (include citations and references)
- (3) discuss the role of the preschool teacher in determining whether or not a child should be academically redshirted.
