Abstract/Notes: This book traces the early history of the Montessori movement in the United States through the lives and careers of four key American women: Anne George, Margaret Naumburg, Helen Parkhurst, and Adelia Pyle. Caught up in the Montessori craze sweeping the United States in the Progressive era, each played a significant role in the initial transference of Montessori education to America and its implementation from 1910 to 1920. Despite the continuing international recognition of Maria Montessori and the presence of Montessori schools world-wide, Montessori receives only cursory mention in the history of education, especially by recognized historians in the field and in courses in professional education and teacher preparation. The authors, in seeking to fill this historical void, integrate institutional history with analysis of the interplay and tensions between these four women to tell this educational story in an interesting—and often dramatic—way.

Moun k ap abite Mèje dekri grangou, maladi, lanmò timoun (ki konn mouri pou maladi lèzòm ak maladi Bondye), ak move trètman patwon konn fè yo sibi. Travayè yo pa touche regilyèman, epi pafwa grangou fè yo manje kann, menm si yo ka arete yo pou sa. Dapre moun yo, abitasyon sa a te pou yon blan meriken ki rele "Mr. Hill" men kounye a se pou HASCO li ye. Sa se premye fwa yon radyo vin entèvyouve moun Mèje, 1988-09-06 (00:20:09) J.J. Dominique entèvyouve Peter Hesse sou edikasyon Montessori nan peyi d Ayiti, 1988-09-15|(00:00:00) Report on the horrendous living conditions at Batèy Merger, a Haitian batèy near Bon Repos. Residents of Batèy Merger describe hunger, disease, the deaths of children from both "maladi lèzòm" and "maladi Bondye" (diseases sent by others and natural diseases), and mistreatment by employers. Workers are paid irregularly, and hunger sometimes forces them to eat sugar cane, for which they can be arrested. According to speakers, the plantation was owned by an American named "Mr. Hill" who then passed ownership to HASCO. This is the first time a radio station has ever come to interview them, 1988-09-06 (00:20:09) J.J. Dominique interviews Peter Hesse about Montessori education in Haiti, 1988-09-15

From Inspired Teaching to Effective Knowledge Work and Back Again: A Report on Peter Drucker's Schoolmistress and What She Can Teach Us About the Management and Education of Knowledge Workers

Abstract/Notes: The emerging knowledge societies will – besides many other dramatic changes – see a teaching revolution. This paper seeks to propose quality standards for this new type of teaching. The paper argues that Peter Drucker experienced much of what he later came to call the principles of self management and effective knowledge work as a boy aged nine or ten at the Schwarzwald School – an utterly exceptional, progressive elementary school in Vienna. Given these astonishing similarities, this school's avant‐garde approach to teaching might just provide some insights into what effective teaching for a future knowledge society should be like. The paper is based to a large extent on accounts by and about the almost forgotten school's owner‐manager Eugenie Schwarzwald, some of which were made available only recently in the course of several biographical research projects dealing with this revolutionary pedagogue and social entrepreneur. Firstly, the paper identifies similarities between the teaching practice at Eugenie Schwarzwald's schools, her approach to leadership on the one hand, and Drucker's principles of effective management and knowledge work on the other. Secondly, it concludes that in a knowledge society both effective management and teaching need to be extensively individualised services – much more than in an industrial mass society. Combined, Schwarzwald's practice and Drucker's teachings challenge some seemingly up‐to‐date practices in both higher education and corporate personnel development, and helps in understanding what actually produces effective personal learning for the rapidly changing knowledge economies of the twenty‐first century. The paper introduces selective aspects of progressive education to the field of management.
