ASHOKA, this article is packed with the science of how children succeed.
How human beings succeed!
My four children went to Montessori through 6th grade.
They are inner driven. Their principles are intrinsic to who they are and the contribution they want to be to others.
They are Bad Ass Entrepreneur Creatives in their heart and mind.
They ask the bigger questions about what makes life work and why.
They are unwilling to conform to a system that falsely promises it will get you ahead if you follow their path. i.e Animal Farm by George Orwell.
That is the battle cry of many educational institutions and businesses.
Thinking for yourself is not facilitated. This is what human beings need to be shown. How to think for themselves and what contribution they want to be.
