  • Discuss the ways that education has been “poisoned” by the cultural rejection of transcendent, objective truth or value.
  • Discuss the difference between “freedom from” and “freedom for.” How does our understanding of freedom bear upon the way we educate and create school culture?
  • Discuss the implications of believing that students have the capacity to acquire virtue and practice the good. What does C. S. Lewis seem to mean when he says that we need to cultivate “the chest” (affections) and not just the head (mind).
  • Discuss the ways in which a classical education can enable students to serve others.
  • Why is leadership not merely a matter of competence, but also a matter of virtue.
  • Discuss this passage cited from Os Guiness’s book A Free People’s Suicide: “That is the true liberal education or paideia. There is simply no schooling and no apprenticeship that is more challenging yet more fruitful than that. Freedom requires virtue, which in turn requires faith of some sort, which in turn requires freedom. Only so can a free people hope to remain free always.”
  • Discuss how a classical education better prepares students to worship God.
