in consequence of the missive, The Bennet girls' education, penned by Cheryl
I seem to remember reading somewhere (Jane Austen's World, I think it was), that young women weren't expected to be educated in too much. Sewing, music, good manners, etc. But not academics as we would understand the term these days. So the Bennets haven't necessarily neglected their girls by the standards of the day.
