“Why is a school set up like a playground?” “Why does my child have all these projects to do?” “Another field trip! What’s the point?” “Wow! are you sure we need all these books?” “Logic? is that really necessary?”
How we or our children are educated is very important. But few stop to think about what grounds our choices. We often revert to an appeal to our preferences or our comfort with a particular teacher. George Knight’s book shows how each educational method, teaching style, curriculum, and even the atmosphere of a school is rooted in philosophical views. Knight’s masterful survey of philosophies of education combined with his careful reflections on Christians and education make this a great summer read.
