Advocacy work takes everyone’s involvement and is ongoing. Here are a few ways to get started:
- Get involved in your state advocacy group. Find your group here: XXXX MPPI can help you start one if your state does not yet have a group.
- Invite licensing specialists, state legislators and other policy makers to your school so they can see Montessori in action and be advocates on the inside.
- Get involved with child-care and education advocates beyond Montessori. Many states have NAEYC affiliates and other groups advocating on behalf of children. Your involvement ensures that the Montessori voice will be incorporated into their advocacy efforts.
- Learn more from MPPI. We regularly conduct short advocacy trainings at most major Montessori conferences and go in depth at our own annual advocacy conference.
