This is beautiful. A classical education is to cultivate the virtues that permeates in a life filled with goodness, truth, and wisdom. As educators in classical education, we must see these truths and have our scholars experience this. It reminds me of the book The Basis of Leisure. It’s only when one truly has experience beauty one can say that is beautiful. They know why the truth of a thing is and how in its purest form beauty radiates goodness. I hope classical educators will feel this difference. I appreciate your article. “Every day in a classical classroom is an opportunity for a young people to do exactly what they are supposed to do with their lives.” Yes! Yes! Yes!
