About This Workshop

As classical education has grown and renewed and blessed many, it has also attracted some critics. Some of the critics have pointed out legitimate weaknesses in the renewal and have essentially hit the target with their criticisms—and many of the best criticisms of classical education come from within the renewal. In this seminar, we will consider two common criticisms of the renewal, namely that classical educators are often proud and elitist. As one way of addressing pride among classical educators, we will consider the cover story article on classical education published in the September, 2019 edition of Christianity Today and written by Dr. Louis Markos, entitled “The Rise of the Bible-Teaching, Plato-Loving, Homeschool Elitists.”
