What If Everybody Understood Child Development?: Straight Talk About Bettering Education and Children's Lives

Rae Pica knows what she’s talking about. With over 35 years in the field of education, she’s realized that what’s missing from our approach to schooling is an understanding of the connection between how children develop and how they learn. In this collection, Pica keeps children front and center as she provides thought-provoking commentary and actionable insights on topics such as the Common Core, the self-esteem movement, and standardized testing. You’ll find;

- 29 short essays on topics critical to best practice in child development and education
- Opinions of experts supported by research and anecdotal evidence
- Real-life stories shared by teachers and parents
- References to related articles and interviews with experts 
With its unflinching look at well-meaning initiatives that may be holding students back, this pocket-sized powerhouse of educational philosophy is sure to inspire discussion about our schools.

'This is an amazing book. It does far more than chase down the myths about how to ensure that children are successful. If offers real, research-backed practical strategies every teacher and parent can use quickly and easily. This belongs on every desk for quick and handy use!' - Eric Jensen

'This book is a must read for anyone who is part of the current education system. It is time to think about what we are doing to the youth who are the new digital generation era and to ensure we are teaching them in ways that are the most developmentally appropriate.' - Lyneille Meza
