Dr. Wood is a former provost of The King’s College in New York City.  He was appointed president of the NAS in January 2009.  When he was at Boston University, he was a tenured member of the Anthropology Department and oversaw the university’s scholarly publications.

In a recent article on “What the Common Core will do to Colleges”, Dr. Wood states, “The Common Core’s standards amount to an assault on the college curriculum.  That’s because colleges will have to adapt to what the Common Core teaches – and what it fails to teach.  It teaches a mechanical way of reading that is poorly suited to literature, philosophy, history, and the rest of the liberal arts.  It also fails to teach the math students need to begin a college-level curriculum in the sciences.”  http://www.nas.org/articles/what_the_common_core_will_do_to_colleges
