The Education of the Individual
Montessori, Maria
NAMTA Journal, v40 n2 p15-28 Spr 2015
Only when we look at education from birth and follow the inner development of the child from the beginning can we truly see the child's psychological progress. Montessori states that personality cannot develop fully without freedom; even the formation of healthy social life requires freedom to associate, not coercion. The early childhood level develops the will, the elementary level leads to social understanding of civilization, and the adolescent level is the gateway to social organization and the fulfillment of the personality.
