Original Home Schooling Series Volume 6: A Philosophy of Education

By: Charlotte Mason


“We all stir out minds into action the better if there is an implied ‘must’ in the background; for children in class the ‘must’ acts through the certainty that they will be required to narrate or write from what they have read with no opportunity of ‘looking up,’ or other devices of the idle.” —Charlotte Mason

Charlotte Mason (1842–1923) was 100 years ahead of her time in developing an educational philosophy that stressed bringing broad and stimulating education to a child in a noncompetitive, Biblically-based way. Her timeless, practical insights and her emphasis on the responsibility of the home have made her a founding influence in the homeschooling movement.

A Philosophy of Education reveals how curiosity is the pathway to creative learning. Written in two books, it explains the Charlotte Mason approach and cites results in students using her approach. In it you will find solid principles and practical methods that make education simple yet effective. Discover

  • what it means to view a child as a person;
  • how to educate through atmosphere, discipline, and life;
  • the roles of the Will and Reason in a child’s life;
  • how curriculum should impart knowledge of God, of man, and of the universe;
  • the best methods for encouraging children to grow in that knowledge.
