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.
Black History is Not Optional
We, the undersigned Montessori leadership organizations in the United States of America, are responding to the recent actions of the leadership of the Maria Montessori Academy in North Ogden, Utah, which allowed parents to make the decision regarding their children’s participation in Black History month activities, as well as the entitlement of the parents who demanded such an option be given.
