Anyone interested in photography can join, no need to be a Mommytographer. We have teens to adults, male and female, as well as people from all over the world. Come join the fun!

Wow! You are making me think back to a course I took in college called "African American Psychology". I was one of the only white people in the class. :) One of the things I remember was research into the types of questions asked during older versions of IQ tests.

If you had a question like: What do you put a tea cup on? And the possible answers were: 1) a saucer 2) a teddy bear 3) a table or 4) the ground, then you might end up with kids from economically advantaged homes choosing answer 1 and less advantaged homes choosing #3.

Another problematic question I remember was about fruit color. What color is a banana? Well, if you live in a neighborhood with not grocery store and rely on a fruit cart or a food bank, you might say a banana is brown or green.

Okay Roxaboxen! You are making me want to track down that Stanford professor and send her a copy of your post because I know she would love it too. :)

This is the study I was remembering: http://news.stanford.edu/pr/95/950816Arc5120.html

This is such an important post. All those concerns you mention are valid and need to be voiced so that changes can be made.

I'm glad the Montessori approach is working out for you!
