Full Title: "When Education Goes Wrong: Taking Creativity and Play Out of Learning"

Dr. Nancy Carlsson-Paige, professor emerita of Lesley University, writes frequently about the impact of media and other social influences on children's lives and development. She is also co-founder of Defending the Early Years, a nonprofit project whose purpose is to encourage educators to speak out about current policies that are affecting the education of young children. In this talk, Nancy speaks about how educational institutions, in their attempts to meet the bureaucratic limitations of "Race to the Top" and "No Child Left Behind" policies, have eliminated creative play from early childhood education—resulting in the loss of problem-solving and critical-thinking skills in later years.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
