News from the National Center for Montessori in the Public Sector:   The Montessori Census

The Montessori Census is set up for a long-awaited relaunch.   Register your school at  https://www.montessoricensus.org



As the nation’s premier statistical agency on Montessori, NCMPS provides a vital national resource.
The national collection of data contains a wealth of information about the people and schools involved in Montessori — information that can be used by the general public and researchers, as well as federal, state, and local governments, in making important decisions about education reform and the proper role of Montessori in that reform effort.
Check out the redesigned web site at montessoricensus.org and make sure your school is listed, claimed, and up to date. This is best done by a member of the school administration.
 Please - North Carolina schools list your school on the census now!
