Education in Medieval Europe
Reading, Writing and Calculation was being needed in governments, business and even agriculture...Math was also important during this time. Education during child hood was very important, wether it was school or work because learning early would gain them more knowledge and skills who would start later.
Only some could go to school and most were boys. Girls were sent to other households to lear sewing and weaving skills needed to manage a house hold. Using quills and parchment was a very expensive method to learn how to write and were only used by those who mastered the arts of writing.
