The Austen's took great care to see that the school they ran was one where the students were well care for and educated. Why then, did they not take the same care to find a good school for their daughters? I know that daughters were not as "valuable" as sons, but please!
Just how widespread were these boarding school horrors of which Tomalin speaks, and why did parents allow their children to be treated in such a way that their physical and emotional health was in peril?
