Quote

…some parents now wonder if their schools are any good if they don’t start formal reading instruction, complete with worksheets, in preschool. Likewise, many schools have reading lists or advanced math courses for older children that look impressive but, being out of the reach of most of the students, convince them that reading or math are difficult and boring activities. I call this the “cosmetic curriculum” because it sounds impressive, but the learning is often, unfortunately, only skin deep.
