In recent years, the early education market is extremely hot. Among the various early education contents, there is a controversial program that attracts parents the most, that is, English training for children. What are the current problems in the children's English training market? "Legal daily" reporter launched an investigation at present, the society has set off a new wave of enthusiasm to learn English. In this round of upsurge, one of the characteristics is that "English starts from childhood", and the trend of younger and younger English learners is becoming more and more obvious. Open class fraud, there are often foreign teachers without relevant qualification certificate, not satisfied with a refund is almost impossible.





There is no doubt that many early education markets, including children's English training, have long been chaotic, rampant and criticized by all sides. Parents who fear their children will "lose at the starting line", whether they need it or not, join the queue. The reason why the early education market can be called "market" is because of the demand, and the demand can form a market, regardless of whether the market is legal and compliant.



虽然该报道的题目是《少儿英语培训市场调查:外教多无相关资质证书》,但报道还列举了早教市场中的低龄化、公开课作假、外籍教师多无资质,以及不满意无法退款等问题。这表明,早教市场的问题,远非几个外教无资质的问题,折射的是家长对孩子成长的内心焦虑,同事暴露出监管的不力。因此,在加强监管的同时,必须首先使家长转变固有观念,遵从孩子的意愿,这样才能使早教市场健康发展,也使那些真正需要早教培训的孩子受益。


早教市场本身并没有多大问题。只是,“早教”这本“经”往往被念歪了。孩子们的成长发育千差万别,需求也各不相同。在人们的物质和精神生活都在不断提升的当下,满足一部分孩子的需求,办一些早教培训,未尝不可。然而,出于盈利目的,不少培训机构仅把眼睛盯在钱上,并没有把办学资格和条件放在心上。于是,就出现了诸如少儿英语市场培训造假、外教无资质、承诺的退款无法满足等乱象。


其实,外教有没有任教资格还不是早教市场乱象中最严重的。不得不承认,在我国那些聘有外教的正规中小学,甚至大中专院校里,并非所有外教都有所在国或本国颁发的“教师证”或其他教育“资质”。对此,有些主管部门也是“睁一只眼闭一只眼”,但这绝非造成早教培训质量差的最重要原因。再不济,外教教授的也是较为纯正的母语。更值得重视的是,在规范早教市场办学资质的同时,引导家长充分认清自己的孩子究竟是否需要早教培训,才是关键。就是说,相比于早教市场的低龄化等问题,转变观念,使家长充分认识到自己的孩子究竟需不需要早期培训,才显得更为重要,也是解决问题的根本。


可见,早教市场的泛滥,除了监管不力外,主要是靠家长助推的。如果家长保持一颗平常心,懂得教育的一些基本规律,或咨询专业人士或征求孩子的意见,弄懂自己的孩子究竟有无早教培训的必要,那么,就不会有如此多的家长对早教趋之若鹜了,也就有可能避免早教培训的低龄化。从小打下良好基础,为以后入学助力,这道理谁都懂,遗憾的是,多数家长似乎还没有弄清一个道理,即早教培训绝非越早越好。孩子的成长发育必须符合客观规律,否则,秧苗主张的结果更坏。


当然,并给所有早教培训都是“垃圾”如对语言的培训,基本上是越早越好。但是,如果过早接受外语培训,那么对母语的负面影响也是巨大的。不少英语培训教师让幼小的孩子用“英语思维”,这没有错,但必须考虑对其母语的影响,不然,英语没学好,自己的母语汉语倒给耽误了。由此,规范早教市场,除了要加强对培训机构的监管,更要消除家长心头的焦虑。而如何消除,除了让其具备一些教育常识外,还需要在升学考试等环节上加快改革步伐。
