Picture yourself in Athens in 500 B.C.—about 2,500 years ago. The days are hot and dry, so you wear a chiton (a loose-fitting tunic).
If you’re a girl, you stay home. You learn spinning and weaving from your mother. If you’re a rich boy, you start school at age seven. You study reading, writing, arithmetic, music, and debate. Poor boys probably didn’t go to school.
