          Keynote address at the South Carolina Montessori Association conference, October 20, 2012. This is a long lecture that contains elements that shorter versions omit. You can watch this video: https://vimeo.com/52479765 to get the main points in about half the time. 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.

                  Presented February 26, 2015 at Valley Montessori School in Livermore, California. This is a new version of this lecture with about 26 minutes of experimental material at the beginning. It's too long, but the feedback was positive. I'll edit it down to a more manageable length and and use that shorter version in the future.
