Is it part of the Montessori method that all women and girls must wear skirts/dresses? I've only recently noticed that the female teachers at DS's school never wear trousers, and the uniform list only gives the option of a tunic dress or a summer dress for the girls.
My old private school has trousers for girls now. Scruffy gits. We campaigned for years to wear trousers. Had to wait for the headmistress to die obviously. Still, they would have been burgundy flares. Better orf in our frocks.
I kind of get the traditional girls wearing dresses thing, I had to wear a skirt when I was at school, but I've never noticed a school before where the female teachers never wore trousers which is why I wondered if it was a Montessori thing.
My dd was at Montessori nursery, and the teacher's definitely wore trousers. Steiner school teachers, particularly in kidergarten and for the younger children- have to wear skirts or a dress; the curved shape is more spiritual . Also, they have very defined views on the roles of the sexes ... sexist in fact...
