  1. Thank you! I loved the CM letter and it was great to discover the site of Bona Vita Rusticanda Est.

  2. Wow. I just lost a lot of respect for dear old CM. She totally misrepresents Montessori education in that letter. I wonder if it is due to an astounding lack of understanding of Montessori or if there is some sort of ulterior motive?

  3. Theresa, I would love to hear more. If you post about it, please share the link here!

  4. I will consider posting about it. The problem is that there are so very many errors in what CM claims about Montessori that I am not sure I have time or energy to counter them all. And please don’t get me wrong. I have always held CM and her educational philosophies in high regard, which is why I was so astounded by her lack of understanding of what Montessori education is all about. Her letter just has a feeling of vitriol akin to prejudice–of criticism based on erroneous assumptions, which is why I (albeit hesitatingly) question her motives to some degree.
    It would be interesting to know more about the history leading up to this letter. Perhaps that would explain a bit of the rancor?
