Howell, Leanne; Sulak, Tracey N.; Bagby, Janet; Diaz, Cathy; Thompson, LaNette W. – Montessori Life: A Publication of the American Montessori Society, 2013
Educational philosophy in elementary and secondary schools has often centered on creating a "product," full of content knowledge and basic skills (Bagby, 2002).

Nelsen, Jane; DeLorenzo, Chip – Montessori Life: A Publication of the American Montessori Society, 2011
During the author's first year teaching, she, like many first-year teachers, found that the most difficult task in creating a peaceful classroom environment was not in the lesson giving or preparation of the classroom, but in managing the "misbehavior" of the children.
