Charlotte Mason vs Classical

I have been contemplating Charlotte Mason & Classical Education a lot over the last few days, and I’ve written a 7-page PDF that looks at where I stand on these two different philosophies of education.  You can download it directly here.

Contemplating Charlotte Mason & Classical Education:

What are the differences between Charlotte Mason and Classical education, as presented in The Well-Trained Mind, Simply Charlotte Mason, Ambleside Online and elsewhere? And where do I stand with these two approaches?

Those are great questions!

Do I have any answers? Maybe not… but I have opinions, and maybe you will, too.

Let’s explore the questions together.
