Abstract/Notes: School choice is often utilized in school districts for access and opportunity. Researchers have found that school choice does not inherently provide access to students. The goal of this mixed methods study was to determine if implementing a new platform for families to use in applying to magnet programs in an urban district would mitigate barriers. Along with the implementation of a new application platform, a survey was conducted with families to determine perceptions of school choice, along with barriers for families. Findings indicated the application platform that was implemented did not significantly change the magnet school enrollment by race. They also indicated that African American families wanted access to magnet programs, but their White counterparts gained access at an inequitable rate. The implications of my findings could be beneficial to school districts, community members, and school boards in understanding the importance of access to magnet schools and the potential inequities that can arise. The design of this study allowed families to have a platform to share their views on a district initiative and share their beliefs on improving the current practice.

Abstract/Notes: This meta-analysis examines the effects of Montessori Education (ME) on five dimensions of development and learning in preschool and school-age children. It includes data from 33 experimental or quasi-experimental studies comparing ME with other pedagogical approaches (268 effect sizes; n = 21,67). These studies were conducted in North-America, Asia and Europe, and published between 1991 and 2021. Effect size estimated using Hedges’ unbiased g, and a 3-level multilevel meta-analytic approach applied due to the dependency among the effect sizes obtained from the same study. Results showed that ME’s effects on development and learning are positive and vary from moderate to high, depending on the dimension considered: cognitive abilities (g = 0.17), social skills (g = 0.22), creativity (g = 0.25), motor skills (g = 0.27), and academic achievement (g = 1.10). Analyses of different moderators did not reveal differences by school level, type of publication and continent.

Abstract/Notes: The aim of this article is to determine the relationship between architecture and teaching, providing functional architecture models that are capable of absorbing the teaching load for movement and, fundamentally, for the development of kinesthetic intelligence (Howard Gardner). For this, we will establish a metric range of spatial proportions, m2/student ratio, in accordance with the activities performed on the BAPNE method. This study will focus on students of Pre-school and Primary Education, providing specific standing architectural models and the minimum requirements for a classroom, as well as determining whether a space is suitable or not for the proposed activities. The method includes analyzing architecture of the basic teaching room, approaching other education systems (Dalcroze, Montessori) and determining the differences between those systems and BAPNE. This study is carried out by architects and engineers, directly noting the architectural needs that current teaching requires for user stimulation.

Abstract/Notes: A new departure in the educational work of the world is taking place in New York in the establishment of a normal school for the training of Montessori teachers. Miss Helen Parkhurst, Montessori supervisor of America, has been chosen by Dr. Montessori to preside over this school, which opened on Oct. 3. A two-year course is offered, embracing various related subjects. Dr. Montessori, who is now in Spain, is to sail shortly for New York in order to take an active part in its conduct. Her lectures and supervision are in themselves of such importance and illumination as to render any pilgrimage and effort to obtain her instruction abundantly worth while. The founding of this school is the first definite step toward the standardization of Montessori teaching. Our country is to be congratulated not only on what we may hope is the beginning of preparation for Montessori teaching in the public schools, but aslo in having the great Italian educator permanently with us. Information concerning entrance to the school may be had through Mrs. T. R. Griffith [Florence P. Griffith], of No. 10 Aurora drive.
