In this, the centenary year of Dr Maria Montessori setting up her first school in the slums of Rome on January 6, 1907, the influential Washington Post has a piece celebrating 'Montessori going mainstream.' [Hat tip Stephen Hicks]
A healthy sign -- that even the Washington Post finds themselves able to praise Dr Montessori -- but try not to trip over all the political correctness in their article.
Keep an eye out for lots of Montessori centenary activity this year -- more details about the centenary here, and if you're in NZ, more details of local activities here.
