Mr. Larry Verschurr, Director of the Montessori Schools of Omaha Inc., was reviewing his preparations for a meeting that evening with a group of parents in Bellevue, Nebraska, who had expressed interest in enrolling their children in a Montessori school. A few minutes earlier he had watched the last child in the afternoon class at the Omaha School depart with her parents. Larry turned to close the school for that day in April 1968. There was little to be done. The children had left their work neatly in place. A little sawdust remained in the triangle on the floor, a small trace of water was near the sink, missed by the eager little hands wielding the mop after the dishes were done. It was time to leave, and Larry re-checked his briefcase to make sure he had an adequate supply of brochures on Montessori education to pass out at the meeting that night. (See Exhibit 1.) In addition he packed pamphlets and interest questionnaires.
