“Why should I use the Charlotte Mason method?” asked the father.

It was the first meeting of the men’s Idyll Challenge. “Will it make my children smarter? Better? Happier?” he asked.

It was a query that echoed that of countless parents and teachers. Some would dismiss Mason’s method as outdated. Others would say it is naive. Some would say it does not prepare for real life. Others would say it has been disproved.

Against this tide of objections, occasionally someone steps forward to make a case for Charlotte Mason. Some appeal to theology and some to research. Others appeal to the historical results.

But today someone new has stepped forward to make the case for Miss Mason. What is perhaps different about this thinker is that it is the story of her life. From the nursery to high school graduation she was educated at home in this way.

She stood up before her peers at the university and made her case to them. Now she makes the same case to you. Read or hear it at this link.
