The Revelation of the Universal Child
Lawrence, Lynne
NAMTA Journal, v40 n2 p1-13 Spr 2015
Lynne Lawrence puts forward the solemn belief that each child is fulfilling the destiny of every human being. As children make their own contributions to their unique family, society, and global life, they are putting the common good above their own needs. Lawrence begins her case for universality with a moving statement from an African teacher in a Montessori training course. She then goes on to observe the human tendencies and constructive energies that every child carries across the planes of development. Lawrence's solid global framework stands as the preface for this journal. [This chapter is adapted from the talk that was presented at the NAMTA conference titled "Fostering Montessori Preparedness for Global Citizenship" in Seattle, WA, November 13-16, 2014.]
