Montessori Education Can Eliminate the Income Achievement Gap
Children ages 3-6 see great education benefits when they go to a good Montessori school in Steubenville, Ohio or anywhere. According to a 2017 study by the University of Virginia, a good Montessori program is the only educational method shown to eliminate the achievement gap due to income among peers. Throughout their later education, children from lower-income families more routinely achieve at the same high rate as their peers from higher-income families if they went to a Montessori primary program. A Montessori program at that young age gives children confidence, the ability to take ownership of their own learning, and other intangibles that don’t come with a conventional education.
I have two board games in production in my Elementary. One is minimalist in art and design, but the play is rather intricate. The other is much more visually developed, but it is a simpler game to play.
In both cases I had discussions with the makers about the importance of writing down the rules.
If they’re not written down they can be tough to remember. If they’re not written down the rule giver could just change them with no evidence that they were ever otherwise. If they’re not written down, those who are playing the game can’t plan their strategy because they don’t know what the guidelines are and if they will change.
It’s a great lesson for life in society, which is what we’re about in here.
