The Injustice Of Easy: Why Our Students Deserve More
I am a mother of three and a first-grade teacher. I spend my days with young children, and I love young children. I understand the importance of exploration, discussion, and play.

But lowering the bar for the content children receive in the classroom because of their age is a disservice to our youngest learners.
