Stephen Newman; Nathan Archer – Journal of Montessori Research, 2024
Maria Montessori's work remains popular and influential around the world. She provided fascinating descriptions of her observations of children's learning.

Nicholas Parkin – Journal of Montessori Research, 2024
Educational theory and practice is dominated by mass formal schooling systems, which routinely and unjustly harm many students.

Gerker, Heather E. – Journal of Montessori Research, 2023
Montessori teachers in public schools navigate a system daily that often does not align with their pedagogy, and district policies push them to stray from high-fidelity implementation.

Montessori education is distinct for its implementation in 154 countries around the world.
