If the human personality is one at all stages of its development we must conceive of a principle of education which has regard to all stages.                                                             —Maria Montessori


The adolescent reflects Montessori education from birth to 18 and reveals the emergence of a highly evolved adult ready for engaging world citizenship. Dr. Joseph Allen, author of Escaping the Endless Adolescence, will address the adolescent workshop with compelling visions of adolescent potential. The participants will discuss with seasoned adolescent educators the formative aspects of adolescent education from the point of view of family, school, and society. These interactive seminars and panel discussions will seek to characterize the level and nature of human awareness, skills, and key knowledge that is universally needed to orient to life’s challenges in our own time, place, and culture.
