教育家爱默斯布朗森爱尔考特 (Amos Bronson Alcott) ,也是路易莎爱尔考特 (Louisa May Alcott) 之父出生于17991129

爱尔考特用他自己的家人来验证他的教育理论。他和他的妻子一共生了四个女儿:安娜、路易莎、丽琪,与梅。爱尔考特相信教育应该是相当愉快的经验。他在自己的学校里教授的课程包括了体育、舞蹈、艺术、音乐、自然研究,以及日常写作等等。刚开始一切似乎都很顺利,但是就在他允许一个黑人小孩入学之后,事情却有了改变,学校失败了。到了1835年,所有学生都离开学校了。

路易莎.梅.爱尔考特(1832-1888)的财务成功对爱尔考特一家是一大帮助;他的经典小说「小妇人」,主要在讲述一个家庭的故事,其内容即是路易莎.梅.爱尔考特根据自身经历所完成的。爱尔考特一家搬至麻州康柯的欧查豪斯,爱默斯.爱尔考特在此地的一座改建谷仓内成立了康克夏日哲学学校;他死于1888年,而该校在他死后不久才繁荣。


Alcott put his educational theories to the test with his own family. He and his wife had four daughters, Anna, Louisa, Lizzie, and May. Alcott believed that education should be a pleasant experience, and he included physical education, dance, art, music, nature study, and daily journal writing in the course of studies he established at his school. At first the school was successful, but it later failed when he insisted on allowing a black child to attend, and by 1835, all the remaining pupils had withdrawn.

The financial success of Louisa May Alcott (1832-1888), who wrote about a family based on her own in the classic novel Little Women (1868-1869), was a big help to the Alcott family. The Alcotts moved to Orchard House in Concord, Massachusetts, where Amos Alcott established the Concord Summer School of Philosophy in a converted barn. The school flourished until shortly after his death in 1888.
