The main difference between Montessori and regular education is that in the Montessori schools are based on self-directed learning where the students are expected to learn on their own. Proper education has the teachers direct the courses.
It is believed that the students need them to be creative as a way to develop their potential in many different aspects. The most significant difference between the two forms of education is that Montessori provides for the individual needs of the students.
Hence, they come to discover what their true passion is. The other difference is that Montessori does not use intimidation to motivate the students to learn. At the same time, it is typical for regular school to force a particular way of learning onto the students.
