Classical Academic Press An Introduction to Classical Education: A Guide for Parents

This small book (45 pages) is an ideal introduction to classical education written by the headmaster of a classical academy in Pennsylvania. It traces the history of classical education and describes its modern renaissance. The book also highlights the distinctive elements of the movement including its emphasis on teaching grammar, logic and rhetoric (the Trivium), and the extraordinary achievements of students who are receiving a classical education. Other sections address the role and benefit of classical language study (Latin and Greek) and integrated learning through a study of the great books of western civilization.

The book is written in a colloquial, engaging style, with several anecdotes, diagrams and charts. This book is especially recommended to parents just beginning their examination of classical education.

Dr. Perrin does an excellent job covering the historical roots and essentials of classical education. At 45 pages, the book is perfect as an introduction to people who are new to classical education, or as a refresher to those who've been involved in classical education for years.
