We know that this has been a difficult time for many Montessori schools in the USA and abroad. In a weak economy, with increasing government pressure on schools to follow a state-mandated curriculum and prepare students for state-prescribed tests, parents tend to be confused and uncertain about the wisdom of following a path that is so different from the ones their friends have chosen for their children. We know that in many schools, students are engaged in a 'race to nowhere.'  Today, strong Montessori school leadership is more important than ever for your school's future.
