Taking Back Childhood: Dr. Nancy Carlsson-Paige   Leave a comment

In a new Christian Post article, author and professor Dr. Nancy Carsson-Paige calls the Common Core Initiative “the most top-down thing I’ve ever heard of in education,” and adds, “It’s hard to believe, in a democratic country like this,  this could’ve actually happened.”

She feels that for the younger grades especially, Common Core is damaging.

“I’m very concerned about the harm that is created when you put inappropriate  expectations on a nation of young children, you give them all kinds of damaging  messages as well as increasingly eliminate their opportunities for healthy and  genuine learning,” Carlsson-Paige said.
