First, Mods, I’m sorry but I have to C&P the whole message as it doesn’t afford an outside link.
You’ll likely agree it’s worth the bandwidth!!!
You’ve all heard me laud the curriculum of Hillsdale College. NOW they’re taking it one step further with a goal that’ll knock your socks off!
Dear Mrs. [2cent],
You don’t have to look far to see how the progressive movement has affected America’s K-12 schools. America’s children (and future voting citizens) suffer from the policies of an army of bureaucrats whose top-down, one-size-fits-all approaches such as Common Core cripple primary and secondary education in America.
These educational elites have replaced phonics with “whole language,” eliminated memorization from arithmetic, revised and distorted history, and removed or made optional most of the literature taught in K-12 schools.
There is a way to reclaim the American K-12 classroom—and it doesn’t come from the top down. Hillsdale’s Barney Charter School Initiative is answering the urgent call from parents and community leaders across America by helping to found classical K-12 charter schools. Using a classical liberal arts curriculum that teaches the centrality of the Western and American tradition in history, literature, philosophy, and the fine arts, among other things, these schools are teaching young Americans in the time-proven way of American education at its best.
In just five years, this initiative has helped found 13 schools—with a goal of 50 by 2022. It’s transforming education, one school at a time. Listen to one of the principals of these charter schools: Our students revel in reading the classics. Our children recite poetry, discuss great works of literature, learn to do complex calculations in their heads, and take Latin starting in the sixth grade.
Watch this video to learn more about this work to revive and recover our public schools. See how you can help teach future citizens the history of our great nation and the knowledge and skills they will need to be virtuous and patriotic Americans.
