A key to education, according to Charlotte Mason, can be found in a poem by Percy Bysshe Shelley where he speaks of “understanding that grows bright gazing on many truths.” (Vol. 6, p. 157) This is true for the student of any age. It’s also one of the reasons our co-op continues to flourish. We even have two moms who teach for us who don’t have any children attending. Teaching and learning with Mason’s philosophy and methods is really that different. Different enough that everyone, including the teachers, wants to “gaze on many truths”.
