A friend of ours, now living in Florida, just posted on his blog an interesting post on the current education system. He says things more straight-forward than I would, and his blog by no means covers everything that could be said, positive or negative, about public education, but it’s worth a read anyway. While most of you know that we are homeschooling and completely dedicated to this education method for the long haul (which keeps getting longer with every pregnancy), you may not know that we are committed to the classical Christian method. While Nathan’s post does not deal directly with classical education, it does mention it as it compares with elementary school practices in public schools. I’ll probably write more later just defining and explaining this education philosophy, but this might give you a small taste for now. You’ll find his post by clicking on the Believe to Reason link on the left side of my home page. (I don’t know how to link in the text.) Let me know what you think.
