We must lay the foundation for peace ourselves by constructing a social environment, a new world for the child and adolescent, so that their individual consciences may develop. A vast education reform and above all a vast social reform are called for today.
We provide and share presentations, activities, and workshops to educate teachers and the public about Dr. Montessori's global philosophy of child development and its system of delivery through Montessori education. Supporting outreach beyond the early years, we encourage partnerships and lab schools to be associated with Family & Consumer Sciences Education and its role in preparing youth for practical life and careers in health, education, human services and beyond.
Gail Longo will be speaking at the October 28, 2021, Euthenics Meeting. Gail's Topic is 'Open all the Doors and Windows and Let the World Move Through You* : Celebrate Euthenics and the Visions of Early Leaders, Ellen Swallow Richards and Dr. Maria Montessori.' (*Theme song Lyrics by Billy Jonas)
