In Rome, you had to have rich parents to be able to go to school – and forget about it if you were a girl!
But what was the school day like in the ancient empire?
Today almost everyone goes to school, but in Ancient Rome that was definitely not the case. Only the sons of rich parents could go to school, while most other children would have to work in the fields or in blacksmiths or bakeries. Poor children would learn their parents’ craft, but they would never see a classroom. And almost no girls, not even the rich ones, would go to school.
Quam improbi sunt hi magistri.
Vae nobis paedagogis vae magistro!
Magister iratus fuit.
Dixi ei aliquid inutilitate carminum, preaesertim Graecorum.
Paedagogus qui dormit.
Hic paedagogus illum discipulum (qui in ludo est et nihil audit) domum ducet.
Magister contentus fuit.
Recitavi ei magnum numerum versuum, quos tota nocte discebam.
