Classical Christian Education
One of the things I so appreciate about our church is its attitude of learning, thinking, striving, and growing. We want to know God, and this is no small task. This attitude shows itself prominently in our families through the many of you who homeschool your children. Of course, homeschooling itself is no small task, and for those who take it seriously it forces families (especially fathers) to make real decisions about important issues. So, for those who are educating themselves about how best to educate your children, I would recommend you consider reading "The New Classical Schooling" by Peter Leithart, recently published in the Intercollegiate Review Spring 2008 edition. It is a helpful overview of the history and thinking of the "classical Christian education" movement in America.
