Dr. Carroll Smith, professor of education at Gardner-Webb University, is a champion of the Charlotte Mason education movement, an alternative approach to education based on the ideas of the British educationalist Charlotte Mason (1842-1923). Mason believed that education is about more than communicating isolated facts; rather, education is about inspiring students to understand their relationship with the living world around them and to engage actively in that world. At this point, Smith calls the movement a “grassroots level” phenomenon.
