‘But when the bell rings I insist that they drop the work at once and proceed quickly to the next work station. Nothing important is ever finished in my class, nor in any other class I know of.” from The Six Lesson School Teacher by John Taylor Gatto, New York State Teacher of the Year, 1991. Sounds like the Montessori work cycle does not exits even in schools today! This essay is his view on what is wrong with public eduation. In fact, Gatto no longer teaches, but gives seminars around the country encouraging parents to homeschool.
