The Need of Montessori Educators in America
Montessori education is the fastest growing reform of education today. The fundamental principles of Montessori have been validated by the latest developmental and educational research fostering an increased interest in Montessori’s methods, especially in the public school sector of the United States.
The growing interest in Montessori education with both parents and educators has started a burst of demand for certified Montessori teachers and administrators…
• In 2012 the American Montessori Society reported graduating only 500 teachers from all of their affiliated teacher-training courses.
• There are approximately 5,000 Montessori schools in the U.S. and that number is quickly growing.
The biggest obstacle in keeping up with the demand is certifying well-trained teachers who understand both the philosophy and methodology.
A second obstacle is getting teacher training and certification to those all over the world in a more efficient way than the present face-to-face/location based model.
