Who was Charlotte Mason?

Charlotte Mason was a British educator who believed there was more to education than passing a test, getting into a good college, or training for a job. She felt that education was a discipline, atmosphere, and life. She believed that education was about finding out who we are and how we fit into the world that God created. This kind of thinking was not popular during the 20th century when education became more about exams and workers. It regained popularity in the late 1980s after Susan Macaulay’s book For the Children’s Sake came out, reintroducing parents to Mason’s methods and philosophy.

Homeschooling has so many great benefits for your kids, but being free is just not one of those things. I have read that the average homeschool family spends around $900 per student per year. If you are homeschooling three kids that’s $2,700 per year! Keep in mind that this is only an average and what you actually spend in the classroom is probably higher.
