“When a 6-year-old says they’re bored, there’s a problem,” the mother said. “I think they bit off more than they can chew.”
Other moms have taken to a popular message board to vent.
“It’s all fun and games until you realize your second-grader can’t read,” a parent wrote on Urbanbaby.com.
And parent Marina Brolin added, “I think they don’t push [reading] as much.”
Earlier this year, parents complained that their students weren’t ready to take tests, so third graders were given private school admission practice exams.
