Dr. Maria Montessori changed the way we look at education. Her methods led people, including educators, to take a good look at the processes by which nations all over the world educated their children. The paper shows that in some cases, such as the education of mentally disabled children, Maria Montessori was able to teach children who were considered "ineducable". The paper argues that her life-long pursuit to educate children who others had left behind most definitely qualifies her as a pioneer in the fields of special education and early education in children.

From the Paper:

"Many ideas and values make up the Montessori model of teaching, but the main idea is that "the purpose of education is to fully develop human potentialities" (Dubble, 1998, p. 2). Through this main idea, children are exposed, from an early age, to resources that allow them to learn at their own pace from surroundings that naturally inspire them to learn. Today these seemingly simple ideas are still rather radical, and in the late 1800s and early 1900s when Dr. Montessori first endeavored to use her methods, educators were shocked."
