Searching for Equity in Education: A Qualitative Study Examining the Experiences of African American Families in Accessing and Financing Montessori Education

Available from: ProQuest - Dissertations and Theses

See More

Abstract/Notes: In this qualitative, interpretive study, I examine the experiences of African American families in accessing and financing Montessori education in the United States, including African American families who did or did not eventually enroll their child(ren) in Montessori schools. The extant literature notes that African American families are disproportionately underrepresented in Montessori schools, despite an interest in this form of education. Grounded in the theoretical framework of critical race theory, I analyze participants’ perspectives on the role of race, and relatedly class, on what helped or hindered their awareness of, access to, and financing of Montessori education. Through 45–60-minute interviews with 13 African American families characterized as interested in enrolling their children in Montessori education, I found the following themes in regard to my research questions. First, participants’ experiences were noted as the power of social capital, challenge of logistics, and competing tensions in enrollment decision making. Second, hindrances to participants’ access and financing of Montessori education included: financial and financial aid barriers, gaps in equitable communication and marketing strategies, and limited diversity & equity initiatives. Third, participants found sources of support for accessing and financing Montessori education through a guiding belief in the philosophy of Montessori education and external change agents. Implications for theory and practice are included.

Abstract/Notes: "Faculty – The Montessori Institute — Dottoressa Maria Montessori and Assistants" ... "The Montessori Institute – During the month of July, San Diego is to receive and entertain as an honored guest of the city, the Exposition and the schools of the city, the famous Dottoressa Maria Montessori, who will bring for that month, her private class in Montessori methods now organized in Los Angeles, and which is not open to other Summer School students. In addition to this private class, there will be on the Exposition grounds, a Montessori demonstration school of children, which will be open for daily observation by all students registered for the summer session. Students will thus be able to get at first hand the Montessori methods and principles."
