A report on the first year of full day kindergarten in British Columbia, sponsored by the BC Principals' and Vice-Principals' Association, is now available online.
The lead researcher, Dr. Janet Mort, wrote that, "in my 40 years as an educator I have not witnessed a major education change so enthusiastically implemented by both teachers and administrators." The report describes the hurdles faced in implementing the program, the successes enjoyed, and makes recommendations for parents, teachers, administrators and school districts as full day kindergarten goes forward.
