Fun Factoid about Montessori
Montessori schools thrive because children and parents love them. More than 90 percent of U.S. Montessori teachers, for instance, are in private schools where revenue comes from parents voluntarily–not from bludgeoned taxpayers. By contrast, the major U.S. teachers’ colleges, from Columbia on down, do their best to ignore Maria Montessori, treating her as a historical figure of little relevance now. Vast government teachers’ unions are uneasy about the freedom in Montessori classrooms.

This has always been a maverick movement. Defying “progressive” educators who molded children to fit a collectivist vision, Maria Montessori declared that the purpose of education is to help individuals fulfill their destiny.

Fun Factoid about Milpitas, California
In the early twentieth century, hay to feed the thousands of horses in San Francisco, became the primary cash crop grown in Milpitas. Hay continued to be grown well into the 1980s when the remaining farmland east of Penitencia Creek was developed. The last farmland in the valley portion of Milpitas was the McCarthy Ranch. For many years, the McCarthy family operated a fruit and vegetable stand at the present site of McCarthy Blvd. overpass.

When the Ford Motor Assembly Plant came to the southern edge of town, San José indicated interest in making it part of that city. The local inhabitants fought back. The City of Milpitas was the result of a defensive incorporation on January 26, 1954. Later, in 1960, San José attempted to incorporate our young city but was met by 1955 Ford Mainline with a very lopsided defeat in the election. The Minute Man was added to the city’s seal and flag following this campaign. Ironically, Ford Corporation called the facility the San Jose Ford Motor Assembly Plant. The automobile manufacturing era in Milpitas lasted little more than a quarter century. After the plant closed it remained largely unused for nearly fifteen years. Today, it is the Great Mall of the Bay Area.
