G.K. Chesterton and the PNEU
This picture shows G.K. and Mrs. (Frances) Chesterton with Dorthea Steinthal (standing), the very first PUS (Parent's Union School) student. Dorthea's mother Emmeline is said to have been a great friend of the Chestertons and was highly instrumental in starting the PEU (Parent's Educational Union, later changed to the Parent's National Education Union or PNEU). Before her marriage, Mrs. Chesterton worked in the London office of the PNEU. Seated in the middle is Rhoda Bastable.
As a matter of fact the type of home school that we are doing this year is based on PNEU which Chesteron was involved in.
