      Presented on October 26, 2012, at Chiaravalle Montessori School, in Chicago, IL. This is a shorter version of this lecture than the one posted last week. In the United States and around the world, calls for education reform come from parents, students, teachers and even policy makers. Even with over a decade of No Child Left Behind (and now Race to the Top) real progress in education continues to elude us. Far too many children fail to complete high school. Basic literacy rates remain low, even in the face of shifting curriculum priorities. Efforts to improve school outcomes have included smaller class size, extending the school day (or year). and new methods of content delivery. Yet, who among us will be surprised when, in ten years time, we discover that tablet computers haven't solve education's many problems. How we do "school" must change radically for children to thrive in this century.The basic assumptions need to be reexamined, because the framework itself is the problem. In this lecture, Dr. Steve Hughes, director of the Center for Research on Developmental Education, examines the basic assumptions of the standard model of education, and shows how an entirely different framework--one first articulated by Dr. Maria Montessori over a hundred years ago--conforms to what we now know about optimizing social, emotional, cognitive development, and academic development. It's a different framework; it's an effective framework. And it's where education must look for real answers to the crisis in education.

                  @ www.baanunrak.org Thailand Montessori etc. emphasized the "criticial period"...when the organism is focused/primed for an evolutionary jump in the sensory/thinking>learning curve. These kids were doing their wheel experiments for many-many minutes prior to this. Metaphor...for humanity-in-2012?
