Using data from the Early Childhood Longitudinal Study-Kindergarten Cohort, researchers at Vanderbilt University discovered that kindergarten students are not being challenged enough in math. Teachers reported spending 13 days per month on skills students had already mastered. Researchers concluded that a more advanced math curriculum for kindergarten students would lead to an increase in end-of-the-year math achievement tests. Click here to read more about the study.
