A Classical Education: Back to the Future With The Liberal Arts

DefaultImage

Stanley Fish wrote a piece for the Sunday New York Times, entitled“A Classical Education: Back to the Future”.
Fans of a liberal arts education (like me) will enjoy his defense of a classical education as the best sort of education for the 21st century.  His argument is actually a review of three recent books about education:   Leigh A. Bortins’ “The Core: Teaching Your Child the Foundations of Classical Education,” Martha C. Nussbaum’s “Not for Profit: Why Democracy Needs the Humanities” and Diane Ravitch’s “The Death and Life of the Great American School System: How Testing and Choice are Undermining Education.”
More to add to my reading list…!
