Our Response to a Recent News Event Involving a Utah School.
We are upset and deeply saddened by the events that took place at Maria Montessori Academy, a public charter school, in North Ogden. MCS advocates for peace and tolerance. We are committed to providing a curriculum that embraces justice, diversity and equity; this includes teaching Black history in age appropriate ways. As members of the Utah Montessori Council we are actively working with our fellow educators to provide guidance and training that will ensure environments where everyone is welcome, valued and respected. We invite you to read this article from the New York Times to see what transpired. - Brandi & Margaret
