"A good introduction to Classical/Christian education and against public school. This is the book that sparked the modern movement to classical Christian ed. Includes Dorothy Sayers' essential essay "The Lost Tools of Learning"."
"Follow up to "Recovering Lost Tools..." after years of application and practice. This and "Lost Tools" are essential for understanding the "why" of Classical Christian ed and the "why not" of public schools or modern ed model."
"You won't breeze through this one but it is well worth the effort. Makes the case that Christian Education is a must for Chrstians parents, from two of the sharpest Christian theologians of the 20th century."
"Biblical Childrearing is an essential precursor to formal Christian education. If a child still struggles with basic obedience, they aren't ready to learn and both parent/teacher and child will hate school."
"TV...the great enemy of critical thinking, from Marshall Mcluhan's sharpest disciple. TV (and other modern media) train our minds to be passive recipients of messaging where we ought to be thoughtfully engaging and filtering. An absolute must read."
"From an multiple-award winning public school teacher, a damming case for why the public schools of today are doing more harm than good and why true education reform would scrap the status quo, not throw more money at it."
