One third of students thrive in a traditional education system

ONE THIRD? According to Dr. Steve Hughes, a professor of Pediatrics and Neurology, the remaining two thirds are either buying time until they graduate or are actually damaged by it. My goodness.

Ryann's future Montessori school (she got in!) linked to this series of videos on their Facebook page and they are really great. I suggest you watch all three.


  1. I was so thrilled when Montessori got the approval of a cognitive neuroscientist (WE know it works, but hopefully those on the fence will be swayed by his articulate argument...). Definitely worth watching!

  2. Yes, it always feels good when science and experts are behind you!
