Since reading about May Maxwell's quoting Abdu'l-Baha re. Montessori being the 'greatest modern psychologist' in Violet Nakjavani's recent "A Tribute to Ruhiyyih Khanum", I have heard other (unreferenced) positive comments Abdu'l-Baha is reported to have made about Maria Montessori and her work. Can anybody share any other references from Abdu'l-Baha or Shoghi Effendi concerning Montessori, her work, and especially points of interest regarding Montessori's discoveries and principles of Baha'i education? Would appreciate also networking with other Baha'is interested in Montessori's work.
