The CNN education blog, Schools of Thought, carried a special background piece on classical education and its rise in America.
Key ideas from the article are the goals of classical education programs to cultivate wisdom and virtue with a focus on developing an appreciation of truth, goodness, and beauty.
The post discusses the integrated and structured nature of classical curricula and the building block approach to developing young minds with an explanation of the Trivium, which orders learning to build competencies in grammar, rhetoric, and logic.
There are interviews with leaders of classical schools across the country and a mention of public charter school Ridgeview Classical in Fort Collins, Colorado being a top ranked school by US News and World Report.
