Synopsis: This book is a "must read" for parents and teachers who are concerned about our current education policies and how they affect our youngest students. Lesley Koplow brings the experience of being a young child, a young child's parent, or a teacher of young children to life in an era when public elementary schools are besieged by pressure to "win the race". Anyone who wonders what happened to nurturing early childhood and early grade classrooms that stimulate the young child's curiosity, creativity and quest to discover meaning will find the answer here. Advocates for the young child's right to a supportive, meaningful, relationship- based learning environment will find a powerful ally, and access to research revealing the score-driven approach to education as antithetical to a healthy learning process. Politics Aside supports the fight for dynamic education and authentic assessment in the early grades, and may help us garner the strength to "push politics aside" and make room for classrooms that feed our children's minds and hearts.

From the Author: Politics Aside, Our Children and Their Teachers in Score-Driven Times has been a work in progress for some time. It differs from other books that I have written, because it addresses both parents of young children and professional educators, focusing on the ways that politically driven pressure for school "reform" is  playing itself out in the classroom, as well as in the inner lives of young children and their teachers. I hope that Politics Aside  will give readers a window into the world of early childhood education as it is now, and the need to fight for the young child's right to a joyful early childhood experience.
