The traditional school system was designed nearly 200 years back to meet the needs of the industrial age. Teaching focused on getting mastery over one particular subject. This was to drive efficiency and have individuals being able to repetitive tasks extremely well. The needs of the knowledge economy requires different skills, which the traditional classroom is not able to meet. People require more holistic and integrated understanding of subjects, being multi-disciplinary and above all, be life-long learners in this ever changing world. The relevance of Montessori education is like never before in the history of mankind.
