Charlotte Mason, Home Education and the Parents' National Educational Union in the Late Nineteenth Century
de Bellaigue, Christina
Oxford Review of Education, v41 n4 p501-517 2015
This article examines the work of educationist Charlotte Mason (1842-1923) to explore the practice of home education in the late nineteenth century. Mason's work reflected and responded to the particular circumstances and concerns of her clientele. She provided a way for parents to compensate for the practical deficiencies of contemporary educational provision, while engaging with current pedagogical theory. In the process, she demonstrated the enduring appeal of a strand of pedagogical thought resistant to the dominant educational models, but not hostile to institutional education per se.
