I don't think that public schools should have entrance exams for 1st grade, because it puts pressure on kids and their parents. Some kids can't handle the stress, and can fail in taken tests. Also, their parents get nervous too, because they're afraid that if their kid doesn't get into a good school as early as in 1st grade, he/she will never be sucessful. So thanks to that, they make their kids insecure.

I really just want to see all the reasons you could think of why public schools should have the right to do entrance exams for 1st grade, so please give me all you can. Thank you!

Only a few kids in the 1st grade will feel the stress of an exam, it the parents more than the kids. The kids really arnt that conserned with how they do one exam, they only concerned about recess, whats for lunch, and playing with friends after school.

The parents are the stressed ones, not the kids. Parnets over reacting.

This is a real problem? Wow.

If I had to guess I'd say it's to not force people into a reading level above what they can handle, which would slowly cripple them academically, but I can't imagine why first grade would be the time.

Yes - hell, they shouldn't have entrance exams for highschool either, or any public school grade. There's a reason it's called public school! But when I first heard about first grade entrance exams over in the US I thought it was a joke...
