It’s been 25 years since Susan Schaeffer Macaulay first published For the Children’s Sake: Foundations of Education for the Home and School. Macaulay was the first to share Charlotte Mason’s education model with those just starting out in the homeschool movement. We learned about Charlotte Mason through Susan Schaeffer Macaulay and discovered “truths that stand the test of time and bear sweet fruit.”
