1. QRIS: Help Protect Montessori Early Childhood Education


    from American Montessori Society / Added

    Quality Rating and Improvement Systems ("QRIS") are impacting Montessori Early Childhood programs in almost every state. These systems give a grade to every Early Childhood program based on criteria such as the number of plush animals, blocks, and toy figures that are available in the classes, as well as environmental elements including how well teachers interact with children, according to QRIS criteria. The result is that while play-based day care centers may score well, Montessori schools do not.
