Women will share in the social revolution: indeed, by every token we may know that, for the future, the bulk of English women, married and single, must bear their part in the work of life. If women are henceforth to be members of a commonwealth, girls should be trained to a sense of high moral responsibility and self-dependence. It is to be doubted whether parents who really reflect seriously on their own responsibility, and on the duties of their daughters as beings who have work to do for this world and the next, would send them to the mere fashionable school. Half the houses set apart for schools are not fit for the purpose; very few would be suitably airy and roomy: a garden or playground is necessary, if girls are to be kept in health. Women learn nothing thoroughly; in their education the reason of things is altogether left out, they are taught by rote instead of rule.
