Abstract/Notes: This dissertation describes an inquiry into Montessori-based white teachers' practices of disrupting white identity formation in the classroom through their antiracist stance. The findings within ultimately demonstrate the necessity for white teachers to grow in their understanding and practice of antiracism. Such growth is meaningful because of the role schools play in systematic white supremacy and racism. Together, the evidence and analysis add to the conversation of antiracist work and produce suggestions for deepening and expanding the potential for such growth in white teachers. In this qualitative study, evidence was collected through focus groups and phenomenological interviews with self-described antiracist white teachers who worked in schools with a student population with white students as the majority subgroup, with other subgroups providing less than 20% of the population. Using qualitative inquiry, the data provide insight into how teachers intentionally create their classroom design and how they make changes countering the hegemony through which traditional educational environments are constructed. Participant perspectives are at the heart of this study. Participants shared their hope to apply a Montessori tenet of providing experiences for the child on the subconscious and the conscious level. The teachers expressed how they have examined themselves and examined their Montessori training to uncover ways they can make changes toward being less Anglo-European centered. The data collected and conversations shared are relatable even to teachers outside of Montessori and demonstrate to white teachers with a desire to be committed to antiracism they are not alone and there are ways to make even subtle changes in their classrooms impacting the children they guide.

Abstract/Notes: Appealing for workers to train for the White Cross work, Miss Irma Weill yesterday addressed the City Teachers' club on the need of such in Belgium to educate the many orphan children who do not have the opportunities of home life. For those who are willing to go across the waters of the Atlantic to do this work, the Montessori school offers to give 10 months intensive training for the teachers. There is a big field in this line of endeavor in reconstructing civilization after the visitation of the barbarians and Miss Weill's appeal will likely result in response here. Two interesting features of the business session included arrangements for the Teachers' club to share in the Teachers' Institute to be held here the first week in November. One of the three days' sessions will be featured by a tea and reception given by the city educators. Salaries of pedagogues was also an engrossing subject.

Abstract/Notes: A letter was received yesterday by the management at Boyland, which came through Dr. Montessori. It announced that Dr. Hewitt, president of the American Archaeological society, who is in charge of the San Diego exposition, has just returned from a visit in Washington, where he arranged with the Red Cross to take up the White Cross work of Dr. Montessori, under its auspices. This work is to be among the nerve-stricken children of France. The plan is to train teachers to send to France to work among these children, and also to bring thousands of the children as well as war widows to America. Boyland will give its services to the White Cross campaign.
