I need a break from the Apocalypse occasionally:
Long time readers have frequently seen me lament that the word “Montessori” is in the public domain, and anyone can open a preschool and call it a “Montessori School,” even if it does not remotely implement the Montessori method of education. The above investigative journalism package from a TV station in Canada addresses the issue well. Notice the difference in the content of the shelves between the two schools.
I disagree that AMI is the only organization promoting authentic Montessori; but the second school filmed here doesn’t appear to know what the word even means. Caveat emptor. ◄Dave►
