Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 31 May 2020

A second side of education at this age concerns the child’s exploration of the moral field, discrimination between good and evil.  He no longer is receptive, absorbing impressions with ease, but wants to understand for himself, not content with accepting mere facts.  As moral activity develops he wants to use his own judgment, which often will be quite different from that of his teachers.

Maria Montessori, To Educate the Human Potential, p. 4
