Charlotte Mason Believed in Self Educating

Here is a GREAT quote from Miss Mason about self education a la Robinson Curriculum and  Moore Homeschooling.

"I think we owe it to children to let them dig their knowledge, of whatever subject, for themselves out of the fit book; and this for two reasons:  What a child digs for is his own possession; what is poured into his ear, like the idle song of a pleasant singer, floats out as lightly as it came in, and is rarely assimilated."
