Andrew Kern Nails the Difference between Conventional and Classical Education

Andrew Kern of Circe Institute, a classical education think tank, explains how classical education contrasts to conventional at the heart.  If one is about the search for truth and the other for power, I know where I want to be found. It reminds me my ultimate goal in working with children classically is not to make leaders, but to train souls to love and seek the truth. What comes of that I will leave to God, because the truth is I can’t make anyone a leader anyway.

Mother of six, homeschool teacher, tutor with Classical Conversations, wife to a forester and educator. I tend a perennial garden with a riot of blossoms, ride my bicycle in and out of the watershed, play ocarina and a boom-chick accompaniment when my kids feel like playing contradance music. I love being home, but I love an open road and adventure, too. Classical Conversations' Writers Circle carries my article on some aspect of classical education once a month.
