At the same time, when parents make difficult decisions to leave their children in kindergarten, teachers are worried about the "empty year", they are afraid of dismissals and how it will be now. Private kindergartens are rubbing their hands - a large group of three-year-olds is falling from the sky, for whom there will be no places in cheaper public institutions, which is why parents of younger children will be put against the wall and forced to make more expensive choices. Authorities of public kindergartens unofficially comment - "We are not surprised at all, for a parent a child in kindergarten ... it is a peace of mind, and recruitment this year will be ... difficult. There will be bitterness and righteous sorrow for the parents of younger children. However, a year is quite a lot for parents of six-year-olds. This is the time to postpone the moment when we face the problem - what to do next. "
Nobody thought about it
The change regarding the compulsory date for starting education raises a lot of emotions - anger, disappointment, anger, confusion. Paradoxically, the problem does not apply only to six-year-olds and three-year-olds left on ice. He also applies to children who are already in school and their parents who are faced with the question - to leave a child in first grade or send to a second one? If he learns well, can he pass it on? But what about breaking the class, after all, not every parent makes the same decision ... And maybe keep a child in the classroom, but how to explain at the very beginning of education that he did not manage? Cut the wings this way? Punish adults for decisions?
Parents have been given a choice and a problem arises.
The reform surprised everyone and no one can predict the future and the consequences of all choices. It can be predicted that in most state and non-public institutions:
- typical first groups will not be created and three-year-olds will be "assigned" to other older groups,
- it will be even harder to get to the kindergarten to the youngest children and those who were counting on a place in the first grade,
- "elite" classes will be created in schools, few, which can be considered a good trend, but not necessarily,
- you also have to take into account the mess and natural difficulties when making changes,
- in the long run there is a risk of teachers losing their jobs.
That's all? Unfortunately not. The highest price, as usual, will be paid by children.
Is this a good change?
Parents of six-year-olds are happy and overwhelmingly leave their children in kindergartens. They are convinced that this is a good decision, although doubts are also natural. Next to them, there is a group of those who do not want to "hold back several-year-olds" and decide on early education. Here it was, after all - about choice. And everything is fine.
However, the consequences of this choice were forgotten. They are mess and lack of places in public facilities for younger children. Of course, it's not the parents' decision anyway. Claims should be directed elsewhere ... But are they taken into account there?
