The myth of neutrality, pluralism and secularism have thoroughly infilterated the school systems of today. We create the "No Child Left Behind Act", increase after-school programs and try out new methods, yet the problems continue. Illiteracy, low math scores, shameful knowledge of geography, not to mention the crime, drugs and lewd behavior of our schools are enough to show that our solutions aren't working the way we'd like them to. Douglas Wilson lays the blame squarely on the fact that schools are neutral about morality, purporting that education is essentially religious in nature. Building upon this premise, he advocates a return to Christian classical education, emphasizing early childhood learning and a system based upon the word of God. 256 indexed pages.

An excellent book!! All who take the time to read it will find the answers to why public education is failing to "educate". There is a difference in the foundation for a liberal arts diploma and the present-day diplomas being awarded which are from "liberal" ideas which have been integrated into curricula. Those ideas are now in place in elementary and high school material. This book gives an overview of the solid foundation needed. There will be those who disagree because the word of God is the basis for the author's premise. But all knowledge is from the Creator.
