I thought kindergarten teaches kids how to 1) sit still; 2) listen
while an adult speaks to a _group_ of children; 3) play (relatively)
nicely with other children; 4) sing and do simple artwork; 5) perhaps
learn to read (if not known yet). (This seems to be what happened
with my children, at least.)

What about kindergarten "instructs students to act unintelligent"?
Is it a plan or ?bad? teachers? Or?
