In Athens, education is way different to Sparta. One of them is reading and writing which is one of their main important ways to learn. The second is that Spartans are trained to be tough while all of Greeks knowledge comes from the Athenians. Spartans would fight and protect land for ancient greece while Athenians would write and record the dates and events that had happened each day, which we could use to see how the past was and so we don’t make the same mistakes again.The primary purpose of Athenian education was to produce thinkers, people well-trained in arts and sciences, people prepared for peace or war. Young Athenian boys were tutored at home until the age of six or seven, and then they were sent to neighborhood schools for primary education until they were 14 years of age. These schools were usually private schools, but tuition costs were low enough that even most poor Athenians could afford to send their boys to school for at least a few years.
