Classical Education – Ohio’s Standards Answer

| September 10, 2013 | 1 Comment

America led the world in education and innovation prior to federal influence in education. First they drove God, the Bible and prayer from the classroom. Next, Classical Education was abandoned and replaced with achievement standards driven Outcome Based Education in America’s public schools.  We have watched this incrementalism erode our parental authority, local control, community values and American heritage. The question never was “how do we return to the nation that leads the world” but rather “how do we get our agenda taught in all classrooms”? The design for CCSSI is nothing new. It is a repackaging of the framework outlined in Marc Tucker’s now infamous “Letter to Hillary”, advanced through every reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) since.  After watching this video you’ll be asking yourself why Ohio’s children are being denied this solid and PROVEN approach to education. Could it be to find our solution, we need look no further than our past?

    For a premier classical school (grades 7-12) in Northeast Ohio, check out The Lyceum:

    All students study Latin and Greek, perform plays of Shakespeare, and study original texts like Euclid’s Elements, Plutarch’s Lives, and the Constitution. The Lyceum is a true community of young learners. 25 % of its graduates score in the top
    1-5 % on the PSAT and are recognized as National Merit Scholars, Finalists, or
    Commended Students and attend some of the finest colleges and universities throughout the United States.
