I've had it both ways.  Our district does not have a policy....
Some children need to learn to work independently from their twin, have
their own life...
Others seem to enjoy the competition of being in the same class.  One family
wanted their daughters to have a similar education and were afraid that the
teaching methods and styles of two different teachers might make up for an
unequal experience.

Subject: [k3] Twins in public school


I have a question that I hope you can help me with. I am looking for
research, publications and some more information about placing Twins in the
same classroom together who will be starting kindergarten this fall. What
are the recommendations? What does the research say about this? What are
your experiences with this in a typical public school in North Carolina?  Do
school boards or school systems have policies against placing twins in the
same classroom?  Do you think public schools leaders have a right to decide
on classroom placement or should this be left up to the parents?

I did a google search and came up with the following article from Ron Banks:
http://ecap.crc.uiuc.edu/info/pubs/fri/twins.html   but I am looking for
more information on this topic, perhaps some anecdotal records, first hand
experiences, action research, and/or methods used in placement, etc.

Thank you in advance for any further websites and/or information you can to
send me.
