Okay - to be fair - this was discussed at our board meeting today. A member school was told by their licensing person that their supervisor did not like mixed age classrooms and that maybe it would be a problem in the future. It was suggested that our website should offer advice in advocacy issues like this one. I agreed.
Then, I was browsing the Montessori Public Policy Initiative(MPPI) Website - just for fun and I came across a research paper on the mixed age classroom. Don't you love it when stuff like this happens?
So I don't know who needs it, but if you do - here it is - and also I guess I just started us writing blogs. Have a question? Topic of interest? Throw it out there.... send it to us and we'll see how we can help!
Ask us anything.
We want to help you sort through and understand how to support Montessori in Virginia.
Here you will find guest blogs from accrediting organizations like MACTE, training centers who can help you through those first years as a guide, leaders in social justice who can advise us to consider change and, of course, the VMA board members.
