Standing Up For Montessori Teachers Parents within the Charlotte Montessori community are petitioning the North Carolina State Board of Education and the Department of Public Instruction to recognize Montessori teacher education program credits toward licensure. The goal is to keep credentialed Montessori teachers in the classroom and in our schools, ensuring that our Montessori public programs are authentic and staffed by Montessori credentialed teachers; and, this change would save tax payer dollars.
