Abstract/Notes: The early 1960s was a critical, albeit chaotic, period for the revival of the Montessori movement, which had been recently rekindled in the United States. The success or failure of the movement can arguably be said to have rested squarely upon the backs of those founding members and early supporters of the fledgling American Montessori Society, (AMS) which, in its infancy, was trembling under the weight of its own potential success--a social, cultural, and spiritual phenomena that was enfolded within an educational philosophy and methodology. The organization was vulnerable, and there was no way of predicting its future success or failure. There was no question that someone was needed to handle office affairs, and the importance of bringing the right person in for that job, at that specific time in the history of AMS, could not be minimized--although the full weight of the consequence of that hiring decision 50 years ago can be understood only in retrospect. Help was urgently needed, and it was soon to arrive in the person of Cleo Monson. As it happened, Monson embodied the essential traits and skills paramount to accomplishing the job, and she would later be credited, by many who knew her both professionally, as the critical pillar upon which would rest the survival and success of the AMS.

Empire, Civil Society, and the Beginnings of Colonial Education in India

Asia, India, Montessori method of education - Criticism, interpretation, etc., South Asia

Abstract/Notes: This book tells a story of radical educational change. In the early nineteenth century, an imperial civil society movement promoted modern elementary 'schools for all'. This movement included British, American and German missionaries, and Indian intellectuals and social reformers. They organised themselves in non-governmental organisations, which aimed to change Indian education. Firstly, they introduced a new culture of schooling, centred on memorisation, examination, and technocratic management. Secondly, they laid the ground for the building of the colonial system of education, which substituted indigenous education. Thirdly, they broadened the social accessibility of schooling. However, for the nineteenth century reformers, education for all did not mean equal education for all: elementary schooling became a means to teach different subalterns 'their place' in colonial society. Finally, the educational movement also furthered the building of a secular 'national education' in England.
