Abstract/Notes: The article describes Montessori instruction and how this method is being increasingly adopted by public schools. Although private schools remain the primary settings for Montessori instruction in the U.S., the philosophy and methods identified with the movement have spread rapidly in the public system in the 1980s. First embraced by public educators in the mid-1970s as a theme for magnet programs designed to spur desegregation, the approach is now being used in about 110 public schools in 60 districts. Some 14,000 pupils were enrolled as of last 1989. The two major professional groups in the filed differ on the extent to which Montessori methods should be adapted to today's society, and dozens of different associations provide teacher training. Association leaders say they are working separately and together to promote the movement's spread into the public sector. But they concede that their efforts are relatively recent. The secret is based on the work of Maria Montessori, an Italian physician and biologist born in 1870 who first worked with children labeled and retarded and then with the children of poor families in inner-city Rome. Her children learn best in environments that respect and support their individual development. Maintaining that children's first six years are the most critical for learning, Montessori promoted a holistic approach that would begin children's education at an early age. In the eighties, the emphasis on early childhood education and the emergence of the school choice movement have further bolstered the popularity of Montessori ideas among school-savvy parents. The American Montessori Society (AMS) represents more than 700 schools. The U.S. branch of the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) represents 130 schools. While only about two dozen public schools are officially recognized by either the AMS or the AMI, many public school teachers have been trained in programs accredited by those groups.
