Malsbary, Christine Brigid – Urban Education, 2018
The current goals of the standards-based reform environment can be limiting to teachers' freedom and creativity.

The results of this study suggest that, as girls seem to be more receptive to learning at an earlier age, they should start in second or third grade with math enrichment over and above the regular math class. This early intervention might help decrease the inequities that occur later in schooling. (Author/RDN)
