Sammanfattning

In 2012, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) proposed an assessment for early learning outcomes known as the International Early Learning and Child Well-Being Study (IELS). The assessment, dubbed ‘baby PISA,’ will explore the learning and well-being of five-year-olds. Worryingly, early childhood educators, researchers and scholars were given little consultation about the project and fear the potential problems if ‘baby PISA’ takes hold across the world. Scholars have argued that the standardisation of early childhood would lead to more academic drills, tests and the loss of child choice, hands-on activities, less play and developmentally meaningful learning. And also a fear that it will change the nature of early childhood education as we currently know it. This chapter will explore the current debates about baby PISA, contrasting it with some of the critique directed towards PISA assessment for 15-year-olds. The perspective of teacher in the form of personal narratives will provide new realities for understanding the contextual and cultural contexts. Teacher voices are yet to be clearly heard within the baby PISA debate. As authors, we write from a Swedish perspective. The chapter will conclude with alternative ways of supporting children’s well-being, advocating the need for supporting all children in meaningful ways. This includes practices that are cultural and contextually specific to support the diversity and individual needs of all children.
