Product description


"A stimulating evaluation of Montessori philosophy and practice, exploring some of the basic principles in relation to modern scientific research. . . . In particular, anyone wanting to take a detailed and critical look at Montessori education would surely benefit from reading this book."

--Montessori International

"Angeline Lillard may have changed the rules of engagement for debates on educational reform."

--Dennis Schapiro, Editor, The Public Montessorian

"Dr. Angeline Stoll Lillard has clearly summarized the research that explains why, after 100 years, the Montessori approach to education continues to be a phenomenal worldwide success."

--Tim Seldin, President, The Montessori Foundation, and Chair, The International Montessori Council

"Lillard provides a visionary framework for those currently working to advance Montessori education and those committed to furthering school reform initiatives. This is an illuminating, thoughtful, and extremely important book."

--Richard A. Ungerer, Executive Director, American Montessori Society

"Lillard has masterfully explored the basic tenets of Montessori education and how they are validated with todays scientific findings. The result is a long-awaited and important contribution that contrasts with traditional education and offers evidence in support of a method that works. A
stunning achievement!"

--Virginia McHugh Goodwin, Executive Director, Association Montessori Internationale, USA
