Abstract/Notes: The proliferation of urban “no-excuses” charter schools has been justified by arguing that Black and Latinx parents want strict discipline. In this article, we examine what discipline means to Black and Latinx families at two popular choice options: a no-excuses charter and two public Montessori magnets. We found that parents viewed discipline as more than rule-following, valuing also self-discipline and academic discipline. While no-excuses parents supported an orderly environment, many found the discipline restrictive. Parents in the Montessori schools, by contrast, praised student autonomy but questioned whether the freedom was preparing their students academically. Our findings reveal a gap between what Black and Latinx parents want and what choice schools and local school choice markets have on offer.

Abstract/Notes: This chapter provides an overview of Montessori education in Latin America, organized around three “waves” of interest in the method of Montessori in the region, seemingly linked to economic and political factors. These are: (1) the early emergence of Montessori across Latin America led by government policy makers and social reformers from the 1910s through the 1930s; (2) a second wave of Montessori from the 1950s to the 1970s, often introduced by foreign volunteers; and (3) the contemporary context of Montessori (from the 1980s onward), largely connected to private preschools, localized community undertakings, or charity and religious schools, particularly in rural areas. Alongside these thematic profiles, the chapter briefly highlights the development of Montessori in a few national contexts: Chile, Colombia, Peru, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, and Panama.
