As a psychologist who works in the education sector I think I can comment a little on the pitfalls of using the ACE curriculum.
Firstly there is a fair amount of research that shows ACE doesn’t stack up when students achievements are measured against more traditional education. Don’t take my word for it – go look it up, it’s not hard to find.
Secondly only certain types of learners will benefit from ACE. Children who have learning difficulties and need more hands on and multi-sensory approaches will not benefit.
Thirdly, the ACE curriculum does not foster a sense of critical thinking within the student themselves. It is about rote learning and this is very different from the mainstream.
So consider this program very carefully. I would not recommend this program for many children. Even those it might be suitable would probably benefit more from a more introspective and critical thinking curriculum.
