From the Paper:

"After a long lull, Montessori's methods were revived in the United States in the late 1950s. The Montessori method was "rediscovered by parents seeking a more academically-oriented early childhood education than they believed was provided by public school kindergartens," (Zimmerman & Schunk 2003, p. 176). Dr. Nancy McCormick Rambusch founded the American Montessori Society "to meet an overwhelming public demand for more information on Montessori education," (American Montessori Society nd). When Montessori came back into favor among American educators, the American Montessori Society incorporated current pedagogical methods with those of Montessori. Maria Montessori had died in 1952, and afterwards educators had significantly more leeway in how they interpreted the Montessori method."
