This book is intended to help teachers to envisage the child’s needs after the age of six. We claim that the average boy or girl of twelve years who has been educated till then at one of our schools knows at least as much as the finished high school product of several years’ seniority, and the achievement has been at no cost of pain or distortion to body or mind.

A more comprehensive study of child development, this book is a companion volume to Education For A New World. While unfolding before us the history of the world, and the history of human development, Dr. Montessori places her wide-spectrum approach to education in the modern context.
