Testimonies to request consideration of MACTE accredited Montessori Teacher Education Programs as alternative program providers in PA have been presented in Philadelphia, Harrisburg, Lock Haven, and Homestead, PA between March and June. Hundreds of letters have been sent to the board also. Thank you to all the Montessorians who prepared and travelled to present testimony or who sent letters.

More information on the Chapter 49 amendments can be found below. Our work will continue with a meeting in the coming weeks with the state board of education. Stay tuned for updates. Be sure to join PMA to receive emailed updates about our progress.

Below are the documents to review to become familiar with the proposed amendments.
