In so many areas, Maria Montessori was far ahead of her time. Dr. Montessori had some brilliant ideas and remarks about peace education.
Here’s a wonderful peace quote from a 1937 lecture by Dr. Montessori in Copenhagen: “Education is the best weapon for peace.”
I created a word art freebie based on that quote. For printing, feel free to download the word art freebie without watermark. If you’d like to share the image online, please use the image with the watermark. Of course, I always appreciate when you link to my post and Facebook page, too.
