Re: New oleander/now elementary education

At my childrens' public school, on the very first day of the school year
every year, they have an all school assembly. During this assembly, each
and every new kindergartener is introduced to the entire rest of the
school, who are told that these children are theirs to watch out for.
From the first graders on up through the sixth graders, the older kids
are taught to be responsible for the little ones and they take that
responsibility very seriously. It's an amazing thing...

Yes, they are. And I think the Montessori environment is perfect to
<br>bring out their curiosity. I think the best part--that older
children <br>have responsibilities in the education of younger
children--encourages <br>a kind of intellectual development that simply
does not occur in other <br>settings. And I think that is why a high
percentage of Montessori <br>graduates succeed at
university.<br><br><br>On Monday, May 17, 2004, at 09:04 AM,
