One home learning mommy point of view…
Okay, so I do have a few things to say about this video. The one in the post below. In fact I have a few thoughts on each point he makes. As well as some other information I think would have made the video way too long to hold our attention.
So in the picture above he is talking about how the public school began. He tells of how the great minds thought it was not possible to educate children from working class ect ect. All very interesting but what he did not tell is the reason why we have summer vacation.Which goes a long with the great minds of the earlier centuries thoughts that children from lower classes can not be educated.
In an article A Brief History of: Summer Vacation in TIME, Alex Altman explains what the thinking was when they were reforming the education system. The great minds actually thought that when children go to school all year round the poor little minds will go insane.
