What exactly did Charlotte Mason mean, when she said “Education is an Atmosphere”?
Simply put it is not meant that a child should be isolated in what may be called a “child environment” especially adapted and prepared; but that we should take into account the educational value of his natural home atmosphere, and let him live freely among his proper conditions. “It stultifies a child to bring down his world to a child’s level.” Charlotte Mason.
