Charlotte Mason Community- Relational Education
"Education is the science of relations." - Charlotte Mason
This Charlotte Mason Community is based on the educational philosophy of Charlotte Mason. You can read more about this at this link: https://www.amblesideonline.org/CM/20Principles.html
Topics are introduced to the student, giving the student at a young age a wide variety of interest. As students grow in knowledge, they will begin to see relationships between different subjects. They will begin to see how things work together. This is why it is a relational education.
"Our aim in education is to give a full life. We owe it to them to initiate an immense number of interests. Life should be all living, and not merely a tedious passing of time; not all doing or all feeling or all thinking - the strain would be too great - but, all living; that is to say, we should be in touch wherever we go, whatever we hear, whatever we see, with some manner of vital interest."- Charlotte Mason
This group works to model the Charlotte Mason ideas for education.
