Montessori education is an approach developed by Maria Montessori, a physician and educator, who opened her first classroom in Rome in 1907. Today, Montessori education is practiced in over 20,000 schools worldwide, serving children from birth to 18 years of age. During this WE QUESTION AND LEARN, Tom Pysz talks with Anthony Pirrello, the CEO at the Montessori Regional Charter School, about the history, development and growth of Montessori education theory.
