Forbes: The Future of Education Was Invented in 1906 | January 22, 2014 | Pascal-Emmanuel Gobry:
"The reason why everything is the way it is in a proper Montessori classroom is simple: it has been shown through repeated experiment to work, in countless classrooms, across cultures, etc...the most recent science backs up Dr Montessori's findings--as well they should since they were drawn from experiment...The future of education is here. It's got nothing to do with laptops. It was invented well over a century ago. What are we waiting for?"
