How Google benefited from Montessori education

The Google Boys prove that Dr. Montessori was right in saying that the most important years of a mans life are not the age of university but the period from birth to age six.

Larry Page and Sergey Brin, founders of the popular Internet search engine Google.com, credited their years as Montessori students as a major factor behind their success during Barbara Walters ABC-TV Special “The 10 Most Fascinating People Of 2004”. Barbara Walters asked if the fact that their parents were college professors was a factor behind their success, they said no, that it was their going to a Montessori school where they learned to be self-directed and self-starters. They said that Montessori education allowed them to learn to think for themselves and gave them freedom to pursue their own interests.
