My daughter came home from school one day with a piece of black yarn taped to her shirt. I started to worry.

Maria, a beautiful and young Italian woman, stood at the doorway of her future — one of Italy’s medical schools — eagerly waiting to enter, only to be greeted by unfriendly students and professors, muttering, “Che vergogna,” for shame! Why the fuss? Well, it was once an all-male school, and now it was not! For young Maria Montessori, it was such an...

As of 2016, South Carolina had 7,402 stude...

When Maria Montessori arrived in USA in 1913, she was greeted enthusiastically and with passion by the Americans thanks to the revolution she made in the child education system. In fact, the New York tribune dedicated to her a wonderful piece with the title: "Maria Montessori, the most interesting woman of Europe". Thereafter, the pedagogical metho...

About 150 years ago, the Western world, in the midst of a major industrial revolution, began an experiment.
