Newspapers are filled with stories about poorly educated children, ineffective teachers, and cash-strapped school districts. In this greatly expanded treatment of a topic he first dealt with in Rediscovering the Lost Tools of Learning, Douglas Wilson proposes an alternative to government-operated school by advocating a return to classical Christian education with its discipline, hard work, and learning geared to child development stages.
As an educator, Wilson is well-equipped to diagnose the cause of America's deteriorating school system and to propose remedies for those committed to their children's best interests in education. He maintains that education is essentially religious because it deals with the basic questions about life that require spiritual answers-reading and writing are simply the tools. Offering a review of classical education and the history of this movement, Wilson also reflects on his own involvement in the process of creating educational institutions that embrace that style of learning. He details elements needed in a useful curriculum, including a list of literary classics. Readers will see that classical education offers the best opportunity for academic achievement, character growth, and spiritual education, and that such quality cannot be duplicated in a religiously-neutral environment.
Anne White5 Stars Out Of 5May 21, 2008Anne WhiteAn excellent book!! All who take the time to read it will find the answers to why public education is failing to "educate". There is a difference in the foundation for a liberal arts diploma and the present-day diplomas being awarded which are from "liberal" ideas which have been integrated into curricula. Those ideas are now in place in elementary and high school material. This book gives an overview of the solid foundation needed. There will be those who disagree because the word of God is the basis for the author's premise. But all knowledge is from the Creator.
