The Case Against Universal Preschool, with Peter Gray

The Biden administration has recently proposed universal preschool for American families, but some experts are skeptical. What’s the case to be made against universal preschool?

Peter explains how, over time, early child education has come to emphasize test scores and academics, rather than the play and organic learning that young children need to learn and grow. Hear about what young children need instead to truly thrive in preschool and kindergarten, and the choices that you as a parent have in your child’s education.
