Praise from Nancy Carlsson-Paige

“Good Morning Mission Hill is a remarkable and inspiring film. In this repressive era of mandated standards and testing, we see a whole school community of children, teachers, and parents thriving in an atmosphere of collaboration, trust, and kindness. We see students actively engaging with materials of all kinds. They are taking initiative, asking questions, thinking creatively, solving problems, and collaborating with each other and their teachers. What you see in this film is real learning: Kids make meaningful connections they won’t forget. I wish that every politician and policy maker could see this film so they would understand what real teaching and learning are.”

 Nancy Carlsson-Paige is Professor Emerita, Lesley University, author of many books, most recently Taking Back Childhood, and is one of the founders of Defending The Early Years
