Nancy discusses how schooling can meet the developmental needs of school-age children; and how current corporate education reform policies are harming young children's social, emotional, cognitive and physical development.
She talks pointedly about how current standardized curriculum and testing regimes and the privatization of public education causes great harm to young children's development; exacerbates inequality and undermines the human potential to engage in social change.
Nancy also talks at length about the horrendous impact virtual schools have on the lives of young children.
