Education for a New World

$18.95 USD

It is not the teacher who teaches the child, but the child who teaches the teacher. That is the conclusion of Dr. Montessori in what is still today, nearly a century later, a radical look at education.

Here, Dr. Montessori expounds upon and defends the immense powers of the child. She gives teachers and caregivers a new outlook that changes the task of child rearing and education from one of drudgery to one of joy, from repression to collaboration with nature.

Decades ago, Dr. Montessori stated what is now a well-known truth: that the first two years of life are the most important. This book explains how she arrived at this conclusion.

A must read for all those interested in child development or Montessori pedagogy. This book is required reading in Montessori teacher training courses.
