Today I have something really special for you! I just re-listened to this plenary session presented at the 2017 Living Education Retreat. The humor, honesty and inspiration from the students on their educational journey with Charlotte Mason is priceless. You will hear a brief introduction by me followed by Gabe, Lizzie, Levi, Liam, and Liz delivering a short speech and finally a lengthy and informative Q & A time. Enjoy and let me know what you think!
Here is the abstract:
Charlotte Mason said that “self-education is the only possible education; the rest is mere veneer laid on the surface of a child’s nature.” So how has that worked out for some students? What was it like to have a Charlotte Mason education? What do current high schoolers think about it? During this session, Nancy will share some thoughts on high school and then five teens will reflect on their own journeys. This will be followed by questions for the scholars from you – the audience!
