A Real Education

Coming soon (book in progress)….

A Real Education challenges the notion of what education should look like.  Drawing on extensive personal experience, Margaret Whitley explores the problems with conventional education and the urgent need to change outdated mindsets about schooling. Whitley takes the reader around the world with her from preschool through teacher training to leading a school for thirteen years. She examines her own school experiences from every perspective. Her stories compel the reader to ask the same questions of their own educational experiences: what works, what doesn’t and why?  By integrating other people’s stories, current research, and Montessori philosophy, A Real Education presents a challenge to the conventional educational model. Whitley calls for a paradigm shift and champions an authentic Montessori approach to education as the only one that provides children with the tools they need to thrive in a future that will benefit all.
