Is There a Reasonable Approach to Handling Violence in Video Games? | Children's Technology Review

From Children's Technology Review, July/August 2002 by Ellen Wolock, Ed.D.

It's a bit unnerving to hear your seven-year old daughter shout "Kill him! Kill him!", even if she's only hollering at the PlayStation 2. That's what happened last week at the CTR offices when Erin and her 10-year-old brother, Austin, dropped by to test a new sword-fighting game called Pirates.

It took several years for the programs to get onto the right footing, says Ellen Wolock, director of New Jersey's Department of Education's Division of Early Childhood Education.

Only 6,000 children attended the program in its first year, with roughly 20,000 children enrolled by 2003-2004. Next school year, officials expect to serve 45,600-90 percent of eligible students. In the fiscal 2015 budget, the state has allocated about $614.5 million, or just under $13,500 per child, for the Abbott preschool programs.
Wolock attributes the slow start to a lack of facilities, staffing and standards."We didn't have any set of standards for programs to follow. People didn't know what to do," Wolock says.

But the rest are offered in child care centers, which provide extra space for already overcrowded schools and create a sense of familiarity and continuity for students used to going to community childcare facilities, Wolock says.

Camden's performance is on par with other districts with universal preschool where more than 90 percent are served, according to Ellen Wolock, director of the state Office of Preschool Education.

According to district statistics from fall 2010 to spring 2012, students in Camden preschools improved by about 20 percent in literacy and math from when they started preschool to when they left for kindergarten.
Unfortunately, that progress is often overshadowed by dramatically low state test scores in later years, with the early advantage often eroding.
"Preschool is a bright spot in many Abbott districts, particularly the larger ones - Jersey City, Newark, Paterson, and certainly Camden," Wolock said.
