I teach at a academic, play based school. Although there were many great points in the article, it was clearly a biased article towards academic schooling. We do free play time as well as play learning time through the use of centers. Our Kindergarten curriculum requires that students coming in can recgonize letters as well as give letter phonemes. So any PreK students lacking in those areas will also struggle to learn how to read and write in our program. I think play is needed but it is a balance between fun and academics that must be maintained.
