Classical Conversation Starters

Posted By Malcolm A. Kline On August 23, 2010 @ 1:48 pm In Faculty Lounge | No Comments

As the educational establishment makes every effort to push Western Civilization down a memory hole, a hearty band of activists is proving, once again, that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. One of these brave souls is Leigh A. Bortins [1], a home-schooling mom who started her own company in order to show the parents of public, private and home-schooled children how to pass a classical education through the generations.

Two tips that the CEO and founder of Classical Conversations, Inc., passed on in a recent appearance at the Heritage Foundation:

  • Have your kids draw maps; and
  • Have them copy historical documents.

Classical Conversations goes out to 40,000 students, up from 11 in the curricula’s first year of operation. Classical Conversations costs $400 for the elementary school version and $1,300 for the high school package. Currently, private school tuition averages about $4,000 while the cost per pupil of educating public school students is multiples of that.
