I want to wish each of you a special time with your family during our Thanksgiving recess, as we celebrate the wonders of the American lifestyle.
Recently, I read a recent article in the National Association Independent School Journal, titled Should Parents Get Involved in Educational Reform? (Fall 2012, Alden. S. Blodget, Director of Sustainable Teaching and author of Learning. vs. Schooling: A Parent’s Guide to Brain Research). The article reinforces my belief in the value of a Montessori education and supports current research we now know about the brain and learning.
After you read this article, I would welcome your thoughts about what you have observed in your children that supports these findings. Looking forward to hearing from you.
