An essential and comprehensive treatment of classical & Christian education by Douglas Wilson.
America's public schools are failing. Douglas Wilson lays much of the blame for this situation on the current idea that schools can educate in a moral vacuum. In this greatly expanded treatment of a topic he first dealt with in Recovering the Lost Tools of Learning, he advocates a return to classical Christian education with its discipline, hard work, and recovery of the ancient division of learning geared to child development stages. Readers will see that education is not the world's savior—education itself needs to be saved.
