Montessori Public Policy Initiative

Learn More
As the experts on Montessori policy and advocacy, MPPI unites, supports, and equips the Montessori community, creating an effective advocacy voice for authentic Montessori education. MPPI drives education policy change so that all children have access to the gifts of a Montessori education.

What is Montessori?

Imagine a classroom uniquely designed to build confidence, inspire independence, and foster a love of learning. Imagine a teacher equipped to individualize instruction so each child receives what they need to learn and grow cognitively, socially, emotionally, and physically. Imagine a child who is not only proficient in math and reading, but who is prepared for a 21st century world that requires collaboration, focus, problem-solving, and critical thinking. Imagine Montessori education.

Then please stay tuned for advocacy actions as we’ll need all hands on deck at both the federal and state levels to ensure Montessori schools can participate in these historic funding streams!
