SS #11: Will the REAL Multum Non Multa Please Stand Up?

On today’s show, Mystie and Brandy discuss the ancient Latin motto multum non multa – meaning, much not many. Applied to education, and somehow misapplied to education, we chat about who used the motto in reference to education, what they meant, and what this has to do with Charlotte Mason and The Latin-Centered Curriculum. We also bring up one of the great unmentionables: the dangers of taking a minimalistic approach to life and homeschooling.

Both applied and misapplied to education, Mystie and Brandy tackle the Latin motto "multum non multa" which means "much, not many."
