The common woman's education would have been purely of the domestic nature in preparation for the only real career option for a girl-marriage! A girl had to learn how to govern a household, and become skilled in all housewifely duties. Most middle-class women had very limited options to education. They were expected to be married and be a housewife as opposed to working outside of the home. QR
Most middle-class girls did not receive formal education. They only are taught what needed to be known to marry. A women's proper education consisted in learning how to sew, paint, dance, and play musical instruments. For many middle class women, they were only able to learn certain things, unlike much wealthier girls. QR

A girl could train in a guild school to become a"dame" teacher, responsible for teaching young children how to read and write and young girls how to sew.
