Product Description

You can teach your students the Trivium, but if that is all you teach them, then you're both in trouble. As these essays point out, education must remember the lessons of old without ignoring the demands of now. In the ancient world, paideia was an all-encompassing education and involved nothing less than the enculturation of the future citizen. Scripture requires Christian fathers to raise their children in "the nurture and admonition (paideia) of the Lord." However, the boundaries of paideia are much wider than the boundaries of what we understand as education. Wilson elaborates on this, as well as canvassing educational hot topics such as vouchers, uniforms, and college choices.
