Falling Behind

"Childhood is not a race to see how quickly a child can read, write and count. It is a small window of time to learn and develop at the pace that is right for each individual child. Earlier is not better." ~ Magda Gerber

"Children allowed to develop at their own speed will usually win the race of life.’’ ~ Fred O. Gosman (20th century), U.S. author. How to Be a Happy Parent . . . in Spite of Your Children, ch. 2 (1995).

“Schools are producing test takers, while life needs thinkers and innovators.” ~ Bette Fetter
