Education is…

“Education is an atmosphere, a discipline, a life.” Charlotte Mason

Actually, I have nothing to add to that. That’s it. That’s all. That’s everything.

 

PS I do sometimes get obsessed with Charlotte Mason, a 19th century educator/reformer who’s left behind a substantial body of historically dated, but nonetheless interesting and occasionally inspirational work on education. If you’d like to find out more, start with Simply Charlotte Mason, which is full of free e-resources about the lady and the authors’ more modern day approaches and implementations, spend some time on Ambleside Online, or better yet, go straight to the Handbook of Nature Study blogspot, which takes 19th century nature study and turns it into an incredible experience for 21st century children and parents.

Made you think? Made you laugh? Made you scream? Tell me.
