Abstract/Notes: There are 25 million displaced children worldwide, and those receiving schooling are often educated in overcrowded classrooms. Montessori is a child-centred educational method that provides an alternative model to traditional educational approaches. In this model, students are able to direct their own learning and develop at their own pace, working with materials rather than in supervised groups or with direct teacher instruction. Because most children are working alone, teachers have more time to work one-on- one with children even when student-teacher ratios are quite large. This gives teachers increased opportunity to tailor their teaching to the specific needs and strengths of each student. We conducted an evaluation of Montessori classroom conversion for displaced students on the Thai-Myanmar border. We administered the Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ) to 66 children before and after classroom conversion and across treatment and control classroom conditions. We then conducted difference in difference testing. All domains showed meaningful improvements in ASQ scores, with the Montessori students gaining 18 points relative to the traditional students (p = 0.33). However, only the personal-social domain of the ASQ was statistically significant (8.8 point gain for the Montessori students relative to the control, p < 0.05) in our underpowered sample.

Abstract/Notes: AMS accreditation: * Leads to discoveries that validate and empower the entire school community. * Encourages continual self-evaluation. * Assesses a school's effectiveness in delivering on the promise of its mission, advances mission-driven initiatives, and helps to ensure the school's future capacity. * Affirms that a school meets a standard of excellence recognized within the Montessori community and by educators worldwide. * Carries weight in marketing to the public; offers families assurance of quality Montessori education. * Is increasingly recognized by state policy makers, granting significant advantages to AMS-accredited schools, such as recognition within a state's quality rating and improvement system or exemption from particular state licensing requirements. * Is recognized by the National Council for Private School Accreditation as a credible accreditation; schools accredited by AMS are also accredited by NCPSA. * Enables cooperative accreditation with 20+ national and regional accrediting associations-a school can earn multiple accreditations for the work of one.WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS TO QUALIFY FOR AMS ACCREDITATION? * A school must be a full member of AMS, meaning that all lead teachers either hold a Montessori credential, issued by an AMS-recognized teacher education program (AMS, NCME, AMI, or other MACTEaccredited program), for the level(s) they are teaching, or are enrolled in an AMS-recognized Montessori TEP. * A school must be in at least its third year of operation. * The school must utilize the following multiage groupings.Full AMS membership: $17.50 per student ($4,500 maximum) Accredited school annual report fee: $195 (due when the school achieves accreditation) ♦ Fees associated with the accreditation process (due every 7years, during reaccreditation): Application fee: $725 Self-study report review fee: $225 Costs of hosting on-site visit We recommend amortizing the fees over 7 years, since these expenses are not incurred every year.
