Conference Theme: The Good Life

Among classical Christian educators, there is a lot of discussion about “the good life.” Teachers want students to heed the ancient philosophers’ call to live an examined life, one that is virtuous, contemplative and wise. Yet, there are many tensions and challenges as school communities seek to realize the principles and vision they promote. Often schools are institutions that feel hurried, overworked and exasperated. Thus the “good life” can be missed, or at least obscured, by the myriad of too many “good” pursuits.

Join us, along with David Kinnaman, Rod Dreher, James K. A. Smith, Joshua Gibbs, and join the conversation.
