Montessori Schools: They’re Not Just for Rich White Kids Anymore

Have You Heard

Have You Heard, an education podcast, profiles an urban Montessori school in Washington, D.C. From the podcast: When Maria Montessori developed a new teaching method for society’s “lost” children in the early 1900s, she had no idea it would become one of the go-to ways rich white parents educate their toddlers. But now, public urban Montessori schools are catching on in a big way and challenging some deeply held beliefs about how urban kids should be educated.
