Education vs. credentialization …

… Ethika Politika | What Makes an Education Catholic. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

The attempt to revive this tradition of the Liberal Arts usually goes by the name of “Classical” education. But too often I hear parents and even “classical” educators speak as if “Classical” education is one option among many. This is to fundamentally misunderstand what Classical education is. It is not Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic with some Latin vocab words thrown in. It is more than that. It is not simply a quaint educational option for Catholic Christians in the modern world; it is the education which helped to produce Catholicism in the modern world.
