The chief purpose of this blog is to examine and contribute to our nation’s “capacity for self-renewal” (of freedom) by discussing how the way we are educating our children today may be a threat to their liberty tomorrow, and how we can reform education to help preserve liberty.

My current plan is to begin with a series of reflections on the meaning of freedom before describing the symptoms I have seen that modern education is largely failing to develop free people. Then I will continue with a sustained exploration of the various causes – social-cultural, political-economic, philosophical, spiritual- of these symptoms.

I know this sounds ambitious, and it is! To succeed, I need the help of engaged readers, so please comment and share frequently anything that you find meaningful. Specifically, for this post, I would like to know your general thoughts about the purpose of this blog and any related topics you would be interested in discussing.
