America's schools are flunking the test. Student's can't read. They can't write. Basic math, science, history, and geography are almost lost causes. Many schools aren't even safe havens from crime and drugs.
Douglas Wilson lays much of the blame for this on the idea that schools can be neutral about morality. He says education is essentially religious. Education deals with the basic questions of life, and those questions require religious answers. Learning to read and write gives people the tools to ask and answer such questions. But our schools fail even in this basic task.
Building upon his previous book, Recovering the Lost Tools of Learning, he says we must turn to classical Christian education with its emphasis on the ancient division of learning geared to childhood development. Wilson will open your eyes to the reality that education is not the world's savior—education itself needs to be saved.
