Montessori Education Can Eliminate the Income Achievement Gap
Children ages 3-6 see great education benefits when they go to a good Montessori school in Steubenville, Ohio or anywhere. According to a 2017 study by the University of Virginia, a good Montessori program is the only educational method shown to eliminate the achievement gap due to income among peers. Throughout their later education, children from lower-income families more routinely achieve at the same high rate as their peers from higher-income families if they went to a Montessori primary program. A Montessori program at that young age gives children confidence, the ability to take ownership of their own learning, and other intangibles that don’t come with a conventional education.
Yesterday two of the Elementary kids made a top with the three primary colors of light to see how those colors combine to appear white.
Today we have a rare sunny day in February, and one of the kids noticed that the lid of Mr. Tom’s Yeti cast a rainbow on the table. So since we take advantage of opportunities that present themselves, we pulled out that same book and talked about how a prism bends light and separates it into its constituent color parts.
