Abstract/Notes: This author observed that many Montessori schools have made efforts to include diversity in their programs. She toured schools in Chicago and found them oozing with multicultural awareness--from the library books on the shelves to the marketing materials they provided to the classroom celebrations of a variety of holidays. However, she observed that most of the students and teachers in these schools appear to be white. Her observations made her to wonder how student populations reflect a paradox when parents and schools are recognizing the importance of diversity in Montessori schools. She contends that Montessori schools are uniquely positioned to become not just actors, but leaders in applying diversity principles to education. She provides several suggestions on how these schools could realize this goal.
