Charter of Modern Thought
New ways of thinking for the bold new age before us.
The 'Charter of Modern Thought' was Charlemagne's decree to his ecclesiastical leadership, informing them of a lack of educational rigour throughout their schools and intended to attract inspirational teachers from across Christendom to live and work under his protection. To this end, he advocated a comprehensive reform of the clerical educational establishment. In the capitulary, Charlemagne requests that "boys may be taught in the Psalms, the system of musical notation, singing, arithmetic and grammar", and that the Church was to "exact no price" for this education. The curriculum that Charlemagne and his advisors devised was the beginning of modern general education, and in many ways laid the groundwork for many of present day free (at the point of access) education systems.
