Montessori and Steiner schools have been preaching “student-focussed” education for more than 100 years. What’s more, their rejection of teacher authority and strict curricula is progressively encroaching on mainstream schools. BUT is there any evidence that their progressive take on schooling provides any longterm benefits to students?? Justin and Justin hope to find out! In this episode we discuss the education principles of Montessori and Steiner schools and investigate any available scientific research on long-term effects to students. Also in this episode: Do elderberries protect you from the flu? What is the gut-brain axis? Does Justin Z have a gambling problem? Who are the other members of the band Genesis?
