Charlotte Mason looked at the world and saw that it was governed by universal laws, such as the law of gravity. Then she wondered. What if there were similar laws that governed the way people learn? If we knew what those laws were, we'd be able to pursue education along the most promising lines .


She devoted her life to finding the key principles of education and then developing methods to make the most of them. The result is a comprehensive picture of living and learning that breathes life into education at every level-from babyhood to the adult years. It's not a rote system, but a flexible set of ideas that keep education in focus.


These principles are for everyone concerned with teaching and learning. They are no more difficult to implement than the principle of gravity which allows you to walk, run, and even--when you know what you are doing--to soar.

Charlotte Mason was a 19th/20th-century British educator who pioneered a movement to bring liberal education to all children. She founded a grassroots organization of parents and educators (Parents' National Education Union) and a teacher training college. Her books and wisdom continue to inspire 21st-century educators.

Karen Glass, one of the founders of Ambleside Online (, and author of Consider This: Charlotte Mason and the Classical Tradition ( has homeschooled her children for twenty years according the methods developed by Charlotte Mason, and continues to read and learn about educational philosophy.
