DATA and Schools

From A Schoolmaster of the Great City:

What the school system needs to understand is that its strength lies, not in the strength of the central organization, but in the strength of the individual school, not in making one school like another, but in making each school a distinct unit. The need of the system is the preservation of its units, so that each school can keep itself alive, wide awake, responsive to its people, easily adaptable, the best of its kind.

The Baan Dek Montessori is hosting a discussion dedicated to the advancement of Montessori education for the success of the twenty-first century and hoping you could contribute. We have established an online community to discuss various topics that concern the importance and relevance of Montessori education today, and for the future, and would greatly appreciate and welcome your participation. Our initial discussions can be found here and if you or other members would like to recommend further topics or contribute to one of our scheduled podcasts please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to a lively and stimulating debate and hope we can once more start the radical educational movement that Montessori enacted.

Best wishes,
