Invitation to collaborate on encyclopedia article

Some time ago I started working on a Citizendium article titled, tentatively, “Accelerated early childhood education.”  (Is there a better name for this subject?)  What is the Citizendium, you ask?  It’s a wiki encyclopedia, like that other wiki, but it requires that you use your real name, and there is a low-key guiding role for experts in what is otherwise a free, open collaborative wiki.

So far, my article covers only early reading.  It could be expanded to talk about academic preschools, baby videos, Doman math dots, and various other subjects.  You’ll see that I’ve tried to make the article neutral.  It lacks a lot of essential information and I’m sure it can be greatly improved.  If anybody wants to help out there, that would be wonderful!

It’s not hard to sign up on the Citizendium (which I got started, by the way–but I’m no longer in any leadership role there, I’m just still a fan).  Just go here and sign up.  Somebody should give you authoring permissions within 24 hours.  Then you can edit my article (which will then be our article) or any other article on the system you like.  Or you can start a new one yourself!
