My family is considering a move to Boise and I am looking for info about the Montessori schools in the area, and about Montessori schools in general. I am considering sending my son to one when he is of-age (he is two now), and would like to hear some first-hand accounts from parents who have experience with them. Are they really that different from public schools? Do they actually practice what they SAY they practice, in terms of letting children learn at their own pace and fostering a sense of independence and competency? Any info on them would be great!Answer Question

From what I've heard about them is they make selfish, spoiled brats out of your kids. Kids are taught to resist authority and talk back, question everything and speak their mind. Not that that's all bad, but you don't want a disrespectful kid either. The kids think they are smarter than the grown ups and let you know it. I'm just not in favor of such an unstructured system. Kids go crazy with no boundaries---then they become out of control beasts. Try finding a nice Christian school and leave the new-age garbage for Oprah and Deepak Chopra.
