Promoting World Citizenship: A Crucial Area of Study
Hacker, Barbara L.
NAMTA Journal, v40 n2 p139-148 Spr 2015
This article probes the vicissitudes of racism and how the multicultural perspectives of a Montessori preschool environment can prevent prejudices. Barbara Hacker is whole-heartedly committed to human unity transcending color differences. Racism is incompatible with a Montessori classroom that shares different holidays and cultures, builds social cohesion, and creates a safe and tolerant place.
