9780847676606: Norms and Nobility: A Treatise on Education

In part one of this book Hicks turns to Ancient Greece and to the idea of a Christian "paideia", the Greek word that means both culture and education and implies a sense of community and individual responsibility. He argues that virtue is the fruit of learning and that it should be taught in the classroom, challenging the reader to find one notable ancient who does not agree. The second part of the book includes a proposed curriculum, grades 7-12, with work in maths and sciences, art and languages, humane letters, physical education and in Grade 12, the problems of knowledge and faith.
