    :( I have to ask this because I need to make a decision and it is making me crazy.

    Is a bad Montessori education better than a great public school education?

    I am currently a teacher for a Montessori charter but the people running it have no idea what they are doing and it is becoming less and less Montessori. However, my girls have always been there. I am quitting at the end of this year because I just can't take it, but I can't decide whether or not the girls should stay.

    Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you

    I'm only slightly familiar with Montessori practices, but just take a look at your question, "Is a bad Montessori education better than a great public school education?" I think you may have answered your own question. If you are passionate about your children attending a Montessori school, why not try to find another? It sounds to me like you're really unhappy with where they are now and that tells me that it's probably best that they get an education somewhere else.

    In my experiences,
    A great public school is better than a great Mon School.
    But I also know any teacher can great even in a bad school,
    and there are bad teachers even in the best school.
    If you're considering switching, visit the school and talk to parents.
